The volume of data in healthcare is massive, but its potential to provide insight into patient care is still in its infancy. That said, algorithms mimicking human-level cognition in “understanding” this data promise to lessen the cost of healthcare while promoting the efficiency of clinicians across the industry.
Artificial intelligence isn’t here to “take our jobs.” Rather, AI is here to accelerate and better inform the decisions we make. By marrying AI with human expertise and intuition, we can significantly improve the way we provide medical care. Think of it as augmented intelligence to reveal new ways to leverage data, treat patients proactively and optimize the use of available resources.
