HHS Cybersecurity Program: HC3 Intelligence Briefing: A.I. Application and Security Implications in the Healthcare Industry TLP White Feb. 6, 2020

The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) as a tool for better health care offers unprecedented opportunities to improve patient and clinical team outcomes, reduce costs, and impact population health. Internet of Things (IoT) sensor networks are characteristically different to conventional networks. Sensor devices are low powered and often use batteries as their primary source of energy.

• Examples include but are not limited to automation; providing patient, “fRamily” (friends and family unpaid caregivers), and health care professionals’ information synthesis; and recommendations and visualization of information for shared decision making.

• Data from Accenture estimates AI in healthcare will be a $6.6 billion marketby 2021 and healthcare providers are projected to save almost $150 billion by 2026 with the help of AIs that can prevent medication dosing errors. (Forbes)
