Predictive Analytics and AI Trends Impacting Healthcare IT in 2021
While not fully embracing technology, the healthcare industry has seen some impacts from AI over the last year or two. For example, at-risk populations benefit from the AI-powered monitoring of chronic issues. This area especially holds promise for the treatment of COVID-19 patients, illustrating how machine learning models have the potential to augment the decision-making processes of medical professionals. Additionally, this proactive monitoring approach prevents costly emergency hospital trips.
To better gauge the current use of AI and machine learning within the healthcare insurance field, our team surveyed technology professionals working in that arena. In this case, 50% of the respondents noted a current involvement with projects using either predictive analytics or machine learning. Another point of interest is less than 6% feel they boast advanced knowledge of ML.
