A must-read article from Erik L. Ridley, published on auntminnie.com, on AI in medical imaging
During a keynote talk at the recent Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, Hal Wolf, president and CEO of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), shared his insights in how interoperability across health systems could help unleash the power of artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging and healthcare overall.
A few extracts:
“I believe that this is a once-in-a-century moment, when it’s possible to reimagine health and wellness by building on the digital transformation of the past 18 months and integrating a new generation of innovations that are now just beginning to move out of research and in the hospitals and clinics. This is both our greatest opportunity and our most pressing responsibility.”
“One of the biggest questions that need to be addressed is how to use AI to fundamentally deliver safer and more effective treatments”, Wolf said.
“The answer begins by ensuring that AI is incorporated in the processes and workflows to augment your effectiveness as clinicians and specialists by streamlining your work and by providing you with information, insights, and recommendations that you need to make the best possible decisions about diagnosis and care,” Wolf continued.
