AI: Giving healthcare professionals 'The Gift of Time'


We find ourselves at a critical point in the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. While we can take it for granted that the rate of technological innovation will continue to accelerate, what is less clear is how quickly we can adapt healthcare to make use of these advances. This is partly a very human problem. For example, many of the healthcare professionals (HCPs) I speak with welcome the potential benefits cloud computing can bring such as better data storage, processing power and increasingly sophisticated algorithms that can help diagnose diseases. However, they also hold genuine concerns that the regulatory environment particularly information governance will continue to lag behind AI development.
