Understanding Artificial Intelligence and Predictive Analytics in Healthcare

In today's episode, Sanjeev Agrawal, President and COO of LeanTaaS, joins us to discuss the applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics in healthcare. There are many misconceptions about AI, and healthcare leaders need to identify proven solutions to see immediate results. This episode is sponsored by LeanTaaS.

Artificial Intelligence in Daily Life

Computers are now capable of discovering patterns in data and coming up with conclusions without explicit programming. People interact with AI in their daily life in various ways, such as through search engines, social media algorithms, and personalized recommendations on shopping and entertainment platforms. AI's abilities have also been applied to industries like airline yield management and financial services.

Identifying Proven Solutions for Healthcare

Healthcare leaders need to cut through the hype and identify companies with proven successes and a deep understanding of healthcare's nuances. They should seek out companies that specialize in change management, share financial responsibility, and come with money-back guarantees. AI solutions can be used to improve decision-making in various settings, such as radiology or improving hospital operations.

Overcoming Barriers to Adoption

Healthcare has been slower than other industries in adopting digital technologies due to its relatively recent experimentation with electronic health records (EHRs). Unlike other industries like airlines where market forces compel a more efficient operation, health systems tend to be hyper-local and do not face the same competitive pressures. Additionally, health systems have already invested a lot of funds in EHRs and have less interest in diverting resources to other technologies. However, LeanTaaS can help optimize capacity by predicting patient behaviour, allowing for more surgeries and appointments, leading to a more efficient and profitable health system.

Investing in Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics

Sanjeev Agrawal believes that healthcare leaders should choose business problems where machine learning and predictive analytics can make a difference. Investing in these projects can have a quick return on investment compared to large infrastructure projects that require years or decades to pay off. Healthcare leaders should focus on the ways that AI can help healthcare professionals make better decisions, resulting in more efficiency and meaningful patient outcomes.
