Artificial intelligence can help every healthcare organisation harness its data to deliver higher-quality care with greater efficiency.
With a growing and ageing population, our healthcare ecosystem will need to 'do more with less'. Digital innovation will be crucial to meet this need, both in the prevention and management of chronic conditions, and as an economic imperative. In particular, artificial intelligence (AI) will have transformational powers, due to the explosive growth in the amount of data (generated by billions of connected devices), coupled with huge advances in computational power and processing speeds.
AI is already disrupting many industries, with early adopters in healthcare leveraging its power for early detection and diagnosis. However, it can also deliver efficiencies in the medical consumables supply chain, and forecast demand at hospitals.
There are simple ways your healthcare organisation can start adopting AI now, with myriad benefits to be gained by management, clinicians, patients, and government and regulators.
