Healthcare effectiveness and efficiency is at the forefront of conversations on a daily basis be it from the patient, the physician or the C Suite perspective. The US healthcare system is expensive and wasteful and ranked near the bottom of the Bloomberg list of Healthcare Efficiency Scores in 56 economies *. So, what can we do about it? The answer is simple. Introduce AI and Machine Learning to streamline complex and inefficient processes to bolster physician productivity, increase patient satisfaction and improve your bottom line. This presentation will provide a high-level overview of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and practical uses to achieve organizational efficiency as well as financial and quality outcomes.
This session is for healthcare leaders (both business and tech), who want to learn basics of Machine Learning and how it can be implemented in business to improve revenue cycle processes.
