Telehealth and AI: Retooling Healthcare Delivery

Description

The stark reality is that soon there will not be enough clinicians to care for our citizens sufficiently. Instead of relying on the more traditional and already overburdened one-to-one model, we must adopt technology that enables one-to-many care delivery models. In particular, artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies allow for outsourcing of routine tasks to machines, creating space in the schedule for human interaction between clinician and patient. With increasing application of these technologies comes greater associated risks, which range from privacy and security to the ethical use of a growing pool of personal health data. As AI and other telehealth tools intersect with care delivery, how can we minimize the risks while improving care delivery, patient and clinician satisfaction, and clinical outcomes?

Learning Objectives

Describe telehealth and how these technologies are changing care delivery and empowering individuals to self-manage their health and wellness

Identify emerging technologies that support the management of chronic health conditions and impact adherence, engagement, and clinical outcomes

Discover the regulatory frameworks that can support adoption of telehealth to improve all aspects of healthcare and near-term goals of frontline clinicians
