AI for Health Care

Relieve pressure on health care systems and improve medical decision making.

Business Challenges

The digitization of health care data and the expectation among increasingly engaged patients for personalized and virtual care are introducing unprecedented opportunities to disrupt the way health care is delivered. Meanwhile, health care systems are overwhelmed by the flood of new, rich data sources – such as social determinants, genetic and imaging data, data from medical devices and wearables, and social media data. Health care organizations must adapt the way they use and share data to relieve pressure on health care systems and improve medical decision making to ensure greater patient satisfaction and better outcomes.

How AI Can Help

AI capabilities – such as machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and forecasting and optimization – can unleash the full potential of data to improve population health and solve some of the greatest health care challenges. This necessary evolution will enable health care organizations to:

  • Improve patient outcomes. Empower physicians with more accurate diagnostics and targeted prevention capabilities.
  • Control costs. Improve the operational performance of hospitals by optimizing staffing resources and taking action to reduce the number of hospital readmissions.
