Programme 4

AI and Pharmaceuticals in Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)

Improved medication effectiveness in real-life settings and enhanced medication safety surveillance are the aim of this programme, which will draw on the database of Hong Kong’s Hospital Authority to conduct a series of inter-linked and AI-driven projects on pharmaceuticals in Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs).

This programme will attract collaborative research from the pharmaceutical industry, develop new prediction and decision-assistant tools for improved clinical management, and inform health policy planning in the Greater Bay Area.
