December 12, 2018 / Diana Manos
Now that electronic health records have, for the most part, been universally adopted in the U.S., enterprise resource planning is the next top to-do for many hospitals, and artficial intelligence is likely to be a big part of it, a new survey shows. The report on AI and machine learning, from Evans Data Corporation, found that more than 58 percent of the developers actively working with AI are working to add its capabilities to their ERP software – or have already done so. The vast majority (80 percent) of those surveyed also said they believe that ERP software processes – management software commonly used in large enterprises to integrate applications – are most likely to be totally replaced by AI or machine learning.
