The Rise of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare and Implementation Tips Part II

In the article “Will the Rise of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Impact Your Job?” we began to discuss some of the implications of artificial intelligence and what that might mean for healthcare. While we touched on some of the disruptive effects it may have on employment, the implications of machine learning span far beyond staffing as seen in the chart below.

How can AI benefit my organization?

If used properly, these AI can be used to help your organization achieve its strategic goals whether it be by using predictive algorithms to reduce readmittance costs or analyze large amounts of previously unused data to get a better understanding of your patient populations. However, since the practical applications of AI in healthcare are still fairly new, not every organization has been quick to embrace it.

Where do we start?

Below are 3 tips to make a smooth transition as you implement AI within your organization:

  • Does AI help advance your strategic goals? Technological investments such as this should not be considered the end goal but rather a means to help your organization get to where you want to be.
  • Choose a pilot area. Consider an operational function such as advanced algorithms that schedule nursing tasks or assign patient rooms.
  • Implement a “prep, test and launch” mentality. This framework can be used to help successfully drive strategy.

What if my organization isn’t ready but I am?

If you are interested in learning more about how to gain experience working with some of these programs, interim work can provide a great opportunity to get your foot in the door with facilities leading the way with artificial intelligence implementation. It can also provide an opportunity to build a specialized tech skillset that stands out in an industry that is on track to undergo a significant transformative change as AI continues to gain traction in the healthcare world.
