How AI can Change the Future of Healthcare

Dr. Kaveh Safavi, Senior Managing Director, Global Health Practice, Accenture

AI has captured our imaginations. Computers that can learn and take on human tasks offer real opportunities across all of parts of our healthcare system. At the same time, we struggle with the simultaneous challenge of improving access, affordability and effectiveness in what sometimes feels like an “iron triangle”. AI technology gives us the ability to move non-routine tasks to machines and to patients with machines, augmenting the work of people and giving some hope of closing the gap between the demand for care and its supply in a more affordable way and on patient’s terms. The transformative impact of AI will be felt in making healthcare more affordable and accessible not just more effective.
