Will AI start to prove meaningful in analyzing all this data for the better? Here is what the experts have to say.

Adopting AI Will Be on Everyone’s Mind in 2023
Another year is coming to an end and as tradition we have reached out to our thought leaders to see what they think we can expect next year. So what should we look forward to when it comes to AI, health data, and Analytics?

5 Healthcare AI Trends to Watch in 2023Dr. Joe Marks, CTO (Wētā Digital), Unity Software and sits on the Board of Directors for Augmedix (@augmedix) – It doesn’t take a leap of imagination to connect Artificial Intelligence (AI) with its proper role in healthcare. While we will always need clinicians to handle the interactive portion of a healthcare visit and connect with patients at the point of care, there are processes that can be eased along the way through recently developed and emerging technologies. With clinician burnout running high and staffing shortages with us for the foreseeable future, 2023 stands to be a pivotal year for AI to elevate our industry.
