Big wave of artificial intelligence and machine learning coming to healthcare, University Hospitals of Cleveland CEO says

#artificialintelligence

As hospitals and health systems leverage information technology, healthcare executives must advocate for caregivers to improve provider satisfaction, be prepared for a telehealth explosion, embrace machine learning and artificial intelligence, incorporate the Internet of Things, and prepare for more cyber-attacks, said Thomas Zenty, CEO of University Hospitals of Cleveland. Collection, aggregation and interpretation of data is critically important, Zenty added. "Tele-, virtual-, digital health, are things critically important to the work we are doing," Zenty said. The Internet of Things is another area healthcare executives must prepare for.


Kognito Uses Video-Game Like Avatars, Simulations To Teach Difficult Health Scenarios

In our case, if you go into one of our simulations, you would learn how to lead a conversation in real life by having the ability to practice a similar conversation with a virtual, fully animated human that will respond to what you decide to say in the simulation that is coded with their own personality and memory and therefore mimicking real life behavior with you. Health is a very personal thing at the end of the day, and as much as we have a lot of technology being embedded into health with all the apps and all the telehealth platforms and everything around it, at the end of the day, because health is so personal, conversations remain the most powerful and most important element of driving positive health outcomes. We're much less defensive when it comes to any kind of feedback on our performance or approach, so virtual humans, when they are correctly designed, they are in some cases even more effective than a real person in certain types of conversation with real people. Now again, you have to have the virtual human designed correctly in terms of how they talk and how they move and how real or unreal they look on the screen, so I don't want to say all virtual humans are equal, because they're not.
