A number of leading health systems are leveraging artificial intelligence and cognitive computing (including cloud, social and mobile technologies) to improve population health management and personalized clinical care by drawing on data from EHRs, administrative claims and social determinants of health. Other deep-learning tools are enabling rapid, accurate interpretations of X-rays, CT scans and MRIs, while driving breakthroughs in genomic and personalized medicine. Yet success with these new tools will require resolving myriad issues such as how to manage the flow and integration of high-quality, trustworthy data; protect privacy; and maintain security. Hear where AI and deep learning are headed in healthcare. Discuss the pitfalls to be avoided as health systems and health professionals explore how to best integrate these tools.
