Adopting AI in healthcare: why change?


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to both improve healthcare service delivery and lower the per capita cost of managing our growing and ageing population. In the future, hospitals, GPs, allied health professionals, and aged care and disability service providers will need to ‘do more with less’.

AI is already disrupting many industries, with early adopters in healthcare leveraging its power for early detection and diagnosis. However, it can also deliver efficiencies in the medical consumables supply chain, and forecast demand at hospitals.

Adopting AI in healthcare, is a thought leadership piece by VHA partner PwC that highlights the application of AI within healthcare settings and provides simple ways healthcare organisations can start adopting AI now, with many benefits to be gained by management, clinicians, patients, and government and regulators.
