AHA: 6 crucial components for integrating AI into healthcare workforce

With the vast majority of healthcare executives citing as a major priority the hiring and training of employees to take full advantage of artificial intelligence offerings, it is only a matter of time before AI completely reshapes the healthcare workforce.

A new report from the American Hospital Association's Center for Health Innovation, "AI and the Healthcare Workforce," describes the many ways in which AI will impact healthcare workers. The report also offers executives advice for proactively addressing challenges associated with AI adoption, and outlines six components that will determine the success or failure of integrating automated processes into the workforce.

"Absent these six critical success factors, even the most powerful AI technologies will fail at a hospital or health system," the report notes. The list was drawn from the insights of the Center for Health Innovation's expert panel, which includes leaders from Penn Medicine, Partners HealthCare, Geisinger Health System, Optum and more.

Here are those six "critical success factors":

1. Multidisciplinary team management

2. Change management

3. Culture

4. Partnering with AI consultants and vendors

5. Workflow integration

6. Project identification
