CCM leads discussion with experts from UPMC and Emory University during HDM KLASroom program on the clinician and care team experience
Artificial intelligence (AI) was identified as the most exciting emerging technology in health care in each of the past two “Top of Mind for Top Health Systems” research reports published by the Center for Connected Medicine (CCM).
The technology is often heralded for its potential to improve patient care, reduce the administrative burden on physicians, and bring greater efficiencies to hospital operations. But despite this potential, adoption across health care has been limited.
While there are myriad reasons for slow adoption, the Top of Mind research identified a lack of trust and buy-in, especially by physicians, as the biggest challenge facing AI in health care.
So where has AI been successfully implemented in health care?
Alex Nixon, Senior Research Analyst at the CCM, discussed this topic with Dr. Judy Gichoya, Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology at Emory University School of Medicine and an NIH Data Scholar at Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health, and Dr. Oscar Marroquin, Chief Healthcare Data and Analytics Officer at UPMC, during an HDM KLASroom program on the clinician and care team experience.
The CCM-led session, “A Matter of Trust: AI and the Clinician Experience,” addressed this critical area for health care technology leaders to consider if AI is to have a meaningful impact on the industry.
