Medical research is moving fast in the Data & Analytics field: It's a known fact that cognitive impairment accelerates when we experience a hearing loss. We are connected to reality through our senses, all five of them; but language structures the way we process our rational thinking, this is why hearing properly is key to maintain our mind healthy.
A european clinical research institution has been collecting data from a huge database of patients diagnosed with early hearing loss. Early diagnosis is particularly relevant to prevent patients from being driven into an accelerated cognitive impairment or dementia. Clustering and identifying early patterns amongst the hearing loss database, combined with the treatments applied to each of them and the evolution of their markers, is helping this institution to detect and prevent future dementias.
