AI in Healthcare – Redefining Patient & Physician ExperiencesShare Category: Community, Data Science, Deep Learning
By: Prashant Natarajan
Patients, physicians, nurses, health administrators and policymakers are beneficiaries of the rapid transformations in health and life sciences. These transformations are being driven by new discoveries (etiology, therapies, and drugs/implants), market reconfiguration and consolidation, a movement to value-based care, and access/affordability considerations. The people and systems that are driving these changes are generating new engagement models, workflows, data, and most importantly, new needs for all participants in the care continuum.
Analytics 1.0 (driven by business intelligence & reporting) for Healthcare as we describe in our book is inadequate to address these transformations. A retrospective understanding of “what happened?” is limited in its usefulness as it only provides for corrective action – usually driven by resource availability. To improve wellness, care outcomes, clinician satisfaction, and patient quality of life, we ought to be leveraging little and big data via Analytics 2.0 & 3.0. This journey will require leveraging machine/deep learning and other AI methods to separate signal from noise, integrate insights into a workflow, address data fidelity, and develop contextually-intelligent agents.
Automating machine learning and deep learning simplifies access to these advanced technologies by the Humans of Healthcare. They are key pre-requisites to create a data-driven, learning Healthcare organization. The net results – better science, improved access & affordability, and evidence-based wellness/care.
Among others involved in the care continuum, physicians are at the forefront of the coming health sciences revolution. Join our expert, all-physician panel at the H2O offices in Mountain View, CA to hear their expert thoughts and interact with them. Our panel consists of 3 leading physician leaders who are also driving clinical innovations using AI in their specialties & organizations:
- Dr. Baber Ghauri, Physician Executive and Healthcare Innovator, Trinity Health
- Dr. Esther Yu, Professor & Neuroradiologist, UCSF
- Dr. Pratik Mukherjee, Professor, and Director of CIND, San Francisco VA
- Moderator: Prashant Natarajan, Sr. Dir. AI Apps at H2O.ai and best-selling author/contributor to books on medical informatics & analytics
We look forward to seeing you in person.
