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


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.
