Executive Dialogue

Determining the role of AI in a dynamic health care environment

Over the past several decades, technology in health care has been focused on capturing and storing data, and creating a robust electronic health record (EHR) with the goal of deriving insights and intelligence from the data. As most health care experts would agree, we have not yet achieved that goal. However, with the increasing advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), coupled with the data that have been collected, we are now in a position to deliver on the promise of a cognitive system — one that’s open, connected and intelligent. Hospital leaders participating in a virtual executive dialogue discussed the perception of intelligence technologies and their impact and influence on health care. They also explored how organizations can define success in the context of implementing AI, the challenges of AI integration and the strategies for addressing these challenges.
