Where to start with AI in your health system


Similar to the Internet Age of 1999, the greatest foundation for accelerated healthcare innovation has finally been laid down - over $30B investments in EMR's and systems of Records. Healthcare organizations have unprecedented opportunities to apply machine learning & artificial intelligence to achieve the “quadruple aim” and optimize performance, but doing so is easier said than done. Beyond the cultural and operational barriers, there is an unprecedented level of hype around the promise AI can bring to solving some of healthcare's toughest problems.
