February 17, 2020 / Samantha McGrail

Artificial Intelligence (AI) adoption is gradually becoming more prominent in health systems, but 75 percent of healthcare insiders are concerned that AI could threaten the security and privacy of patient data, according to a recent survey from KPMG.   Although 91 percent of healthcare respondents believe that AI implementation is increasing patient access to care, the survey of 751 US business decision makers uncovered. The survey explored the barriers and challenges that have the potential to hamper the integration of AI technologies in healthcare organizations. Healthcare security is a top concern for insiders with 75 percent responding that they believe AI could threaten patient data privacy. But 86 percent of respondents said their organizations are taking steps to protect patient privacy as it implements AI.
