Artificial Intelligence Adoption in Healthcare

Article | February 10, 2020

Artificial intelligence (AI) – long an impactful technology in other industries – is in the midst of rapid adoption across the healthcare industry. What was once seen as having great potential is now making its way to real-world implementation, driving improvements in care through enhanced clinical decision support, empowering payers, providers and healthcare organizations across the ecosystem with actionable insight. Patient-generated behavioral data is becoming increasingly common for care management. Smart gadgets such as Fitbits, smartphones and other wearable sensors collect patients’ data, helping patients and physicians better understand habits and set realistic healthcare goals.

Can EHRs Stand Up Marketplaces for Innovation?

Article | February 10, 2020

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) continues to advocate for improved data exchange, with the interoperability and information blocking rules being the latest federal push. One of the ONC’s goals with its latest guidance is to establish an ecosystem of innovation, with electronic health records (EHRs) serving as the foundation — i.e., the platform enabling application development and user access. But when it comes developing an EHR-based marketplace for innovation and mandating open APIs, there are many challenges for all players involved — including EHR vendors, tasked with standing up these sustainable marketplaces for innovation, and third-party developers, forced to bet big on which EHR platform(s) to innovate for and hope they chose right. How could the latest interoperability and information blocking guidelines impact the likelihood EHRs will be successful in developing sustainable innovation marketplaces?There are four key factors that stand to impact the success of EHR-based marketplace development, including:

How Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Are Transforming Healthcare

Article | February 10, 2020

Severely premature infants can face a staggering list of potential health problems. Retinopathy of prematurity abnormal retinal blood vessel development that can lead to blindness — is one of them. It’s treatable while infants weigh less than two pounds, but doctors often struggle to detect the condition in time. Traditional techniques have been unable to spot, let alone cure, infant blindness,” he says. But that is changing: Researchers at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston have found applying deep learning techniques to the analysis of retinal images results in highly accurate diagnosis and severity scoring of ROP results that can match or exceed clinician-based techniques.

Will regulation limit the impact in health care?

Article | February 10, 2020

Artificial intelligence (AI) introduces some important concerns around data ownership, safety and security, and with so much at stake, meaningful regulation should be expected. The pharmaceutical, clinical treatment and medical device industries provide a precedent for how to protect data rights, privacy and security and drive innovation in an AI-empowered health care system. We should expect the continued growth of AI applications for health care as more uses and benefits of the technology surface. I’ve given more than 100 presentations on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) this past year. There’s no doubt these technologies are hot topics in health care that usher in great hope for the advancement of our industry. While they have the potential to transform patient care, quality and outcomes, there are also concerns about the negative impact this technology could have on human interaction, as well as the burden they could place on clinicians and health systems.
