To say that artificial intelligence (AI) is fast becoming an omnipresent tool in health care is no exaggeration. According to a 2022 report by, the global AI in healthcare market is “expected to reach USD 208.2 billion by 2030…[expanding] at a CAGR of 38.4% from 2022 to 2030.”

What exactly does AI do? Gartner defines AI as applying “advanced analysis and logic-based techniques, including machine learning, to interpret events, support and automate decisions, and take action.”  A recent MobiHealthNews article comments on AI’s uses in health care: AI and its related aspects—machine learning, natural language processing, and deep learning—are helping healthcare stakeholders to “identify healthcare needs and solutions faster with more accuracy, using data patterns to make informed medical or business decisions quickly.”

What does this mean in real terms? The uses of AI in health care run the gamut from improving drug discovery, to lowering the cost of drug and medical device development, to assisting with patient diagnosis, to making sense of huge amounts of unstructured patient data. These are just a few examples of the many ways AI is contributing to better health outcomes.

Now strategic partners 83bar and Virgo are adding another use case for AI—this time in the form of a new clinical trial recruitment and engagement platform to accelerate trial recruitment.

Dubbed the Constellation™ Platform, it brings together the 83bar Patient Activation Platform with Virgo’s core video recording platform and VirgoTrials suite of tools related to patient endoscopies for gastrointestinal (GI) conditions.

The process begins by analyzing endoscopy videos using an industry-recognized artificial intelligence algorithm for faster identification of patients with GI conditions. These potential candidates then are quickly contacted by the 83bar clinical contact center to educate them about local clinical trial options and screenings based upon specific indication criteria.

Constellation™ delivers benefits that help enable:

  • Clinical specialists to extend care within their practices and retain more patients
  • Site coordinators to avoid screen failures and fill trial quotas more efficiently
  • Primary investigators to complete studies and get data published faster
  • Trial sponsors to feel more confident in candidate qualifications and to improve diversity
