A study published in Health Data Science introduces a curated bibliographic dataset that aims to revolutionize the landscape of Health Artificial Intelligence (AI) research. Led by Xuanyu Shi and Jian Du from Peking University, this dataset integrates a vast array of Health AI-related documents, offering an invaluable resource for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners.

The dataset, encompassing publications, open research datasets, patents, grants, and from 2009 to 2021, was meticulously curated using data from Medline and Dimensions databases. The primary objective of this study was to address the challenge of navigating the vast and rapidly evolving field of Health AI by creating a comprehensive, accessible bibliographic resource.

"Our goal was to provide a dataset that empowers the Health AI community to harness the full potential of AI technologies in improving care outcomes," said Xuanyu Shi, a Ph.D. candidate at Peking University.

"By integrating diverse sources of information, we have created a resource that can drive further innovation and facilitate a more coherent research ecosystem."

The study's methodology involved identifying relevant documents using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and Field of Research (FoR) terms, followed by mapping these documents to various health problems and AI technologies. The result is a dataset that adheres to the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles, ensuring its utility for a wide range of applications in Health AI research.

The dataset includes 96,332 Health AI documents, with 75,820 publications, 638 open research datasets, 11,226 patents, 6,113 grants, and 2,535 clinical trials. This extensive collection is designed to facilitate horizontal scanning of funding, research, clinical assessments, and innovations within the Health AI field.

"This represents a significant step forward in Health AI research," said Jian Du, Assistant Professor at Peking University. "By providing a structured and comprehensive resource, we hope to support the Health AI community in developing evidence-based policies, fostering cross-disciplinary collaboration, and ultimately improving health care outcomes."
