Dr. Tara Bishop moderates a power-house panel on AI in healthcare at HLTH VIVE

The panel at HLTH VIVE in Miami included leaders from Mayo Clinic, Amazon, Microsoft, and Bayesian Health

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have been constrained by data quality and completeness, insufficient algorithms, AI bias, and lack of data standards and oversight, all further complicated by the sheer complexity of healthcare. Yet, AI and ML in action have made tremendous strides in addressing day-to-day operations, provider burnout, and overall improvements in efficiency and outcomes. As AI becomes more commonplace, it will create a cohesive, interconnected ecosystem for the patient and a valuable asset to health delivery systems.

Dr. Tara Bishop moderated a panel of experts including Hema Purohit, CTO Healthcare & Public Sector EMEA at Microsoft, Suchi Saria, CEO and Founder at Bayesian Health, Taha Kass-Hout MD, CMO and Director of Machine Learning at Amazon, and Vish Anantram MD, CTO at Mayo Clinic.

In this thought-provoking panel discussion, panelist talked about how AI is being used in healthcare from AI to read images to prediction of conditions like sepsis in the hospital. The panel also discussed the challenges to data integration with health systems but also ways to overcome those challenges and provided real-world tips on how organizations can start their journey to become data-forward.
