Artificial Intelligence can have a powerful impact on the way health systems approach patient care and hospital operations, but on its own the technology doesn’t offer a value proposition, said Karley Yoder, Senior Product Manager, AI Analytics at GE Healthcare.
That is likely why more than half of health systems responding to a recent survey said A.I. wasn’t a priority for their I.T. departments in 2018. According to the Center for Connected Medicine’s Top of Mind for Top U.S. Health Systems 2018 research findings, 63 percent of health system leaders surveyed said the implementation of A.I. solutions was a low or very low priority for 2018.
“This doesn’t surprise me because A.I. is not a solution. A.I. is a technology or a tool that if we can learn how to leverage can have a really powerful impact on the way we approach running our health care systems,” Yoder said, during an interview at the CCM’s Top of Mind 2018 Summit in Pittsburgh, Pa.
