Artificial intelligence is not going to replace “highly trained clinicians who use their intuition and insight to make decisions,” but it can show them something they have missed, says Nader Mherabi, CIO at NYU Langone Health.
For organizations like NYU Langone, digital isn’t a buzzword; it’s a philosophy of leveraging technology to improve patient care, make processes more efficient, and reduce costs, says CIO Nader Mherabi.
The first step toward becoming a digital-centric organization? Creating a roadmap detailing “how we’re going to enable consumers to drive their own healthcare, improve access, and provide ease and convenience,” says CIO William Walders.
As the consumer and medical industries start to come together, there’s an enormous opportunity to look at the different types of data, how they can be used, and the value they can bring, says Rachel Duncombe of KLAS.
As digital technologies become more pervasive, patients won’t just want to easily access visit notes; they’ll expect it, says KLAS’ Mike Davis, who breaks down the different approaches used to share data from healthcare encounters.
