What doctor? Why AI and robotics will define New Health

#artificialintelligence

Modern health systems can treat and cure more diseases than ever before. New technology is bringing innovation to old treatments. Yet significant quality, access and cost issues remain and our health systems are becoming increasingly unsustainable. The emergence and increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will have a significant impact on healthcare systems around the world. How will AI and robotics define New Health?

How health care orgs are addressing AI challenges

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is poised to revolutionize health care, in everything from drug research, to diagnostics, to health care delivery -- all the way through to billing and accounting. But to get there, organizations need to overcome distrust of the technology, meet integration challenges, and deal with privacy and security issues. Boston-based Beacon Health Options, which provides behavioral health treatment to more than 40 million people in all 50 states, faced all those challenges when it first turned to AI to help improvement treatment. Get the latest insights with our CIO Daily newsletter. "Beacon is the largest company solely focused on behavioral health in the country," says Christina Mainelli, the organization's executive vice president and chief growth officer.


How artificial intelligence is making health care more human

#artificialintelligence

For some time, leaders of technology-enabled health-care institutions--and today, that means practically all health-care institutions--have been anticipating the potential impact that artificial intelligence (AI) will have on the performance and efficiency of their operations and their talent. But in reality many, if not most, have already been reaping the benefits of AI tools, which are improving many activities in health-care institutions, from enhancing oncological diagnosis accuracy to reducing time spent scheduling patient visits.

These indicators are used in many settings to describe health status, monitor quality of care, and evaluate the effect of interventions. The data and knowledge necessary to calculate indicators, however, are scattered across different health settings, resulting in inconsistent and fragmented indicators and an inefficient use of population health information in research and practice. The Population Health Record (PopHR) described in this paper is an informatics platform for semi-automated integration of disparate data to enable measurement and monitoring of population health status and determinants. The research and development to build the PopHR uses AI methods to perform many tasks, including calculation of indicators and interaction with users.
