The Key Elements of Successful ML/AI in Healthcare

ML/AI has gained significant adoption in healthcare in the last 5 years and continues to provide opportunities for new and innovative services as well as optimized traditional services. Additionally, ML/AI is offering competitive advantage in healthcare.  Faster, more accurate diagnosis… More complete and diverse treatments… Better therapy planning… New predictive/preventive care… Improved drug discovery… Streamlined healthcare workflows… Improved clinical resource management… The list goes on… So, to remain competitive healthcare orgs must partake in ML/AI.  However, many struggle to bootstrap their ML/AI initiatives due to high-complexity, high-cost, inadequate tech foundation, and inadequate staff/skills.  And statistically the failure rate of ML/AI’s projects is close to 85%.  So, what should healthcare orgs do?

This session will explore the healthcare ML/AI landscape, note adoption/successes/failures, point out the Elements REQUIRED to secure ML/AI success, and deep dive into a Use-Case with its developers that leveraged these elements to produce Healthcare Value.
