I fully recognize the import of this question. However, I would be remiss not to interject there are digital healthcare solutions that should precede facial imaging predictive modeling. That to which I am referring is digital healthcare exams. Long before the body expresses pain and/or potential chronic or fatal diseases there exists today technology, which will enable medical providers to see and manage changes in bodily organs. The cost benefits are potentially remarkable. That said, predictive modeling that anticipate healthcare need has its place within healthcare
