Transforming Healthcare with AI and ML
Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming how healthcare and life sciences approach patient care. IDC reported in 2018 that healthcare data is growing at a rate of 36% each year. It is not humanly possible to assimilate such a huge amount of data and derive actionable insights without leveraging tools like ML and AI. Cognitive apps built with intelligence as an inherent part of their framework can be used to solve several existing healthcare challenges such as predicting no-shows, reducing readmissions and improving clinical enrollment and retention. With an eye to improve operational and clinical outcomes, healthcare and life science organizations are looking for solutions that will Improve patient engagement (patient experience of care) and outcomes (health of the population) while reducing cost (the per capita cost of healthcare).
In this talk, we will explore how ML and AI are already transforming the healthcare industry and take a look at some opportunities centered around personalized medicine and preventative therapy to push the horizon further.
