Improving health outcomes and reducing costs. That is the value that hospitals and health systems across the country strive to deliver to their patients and their communities each and every day. Many hospitals and health systems increasingly are considering new technologies powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to help them meet that challenge. Advocates say AI technologies can improve outcomes and lower costs at each stage of the care cycle from prevention to treatment.
This AHA Center for Health Innovation, Market Insights report walks hospital and health system leaders through the why and how of successfully integrating AI-powered technologies into their operations to transform how care is delivered. This report identifies the four building blocks hospitals and health system leaders need to create an effective clinical AI program: people, policies, resources and technology. It also provides recommendations on how to overcome physician concerns about AI and consumer hesitancy about AI applications in health care.
