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.

• 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)
