Navigating Healthcare And Empowering Patients In The Age Of AI

With the sharp rise in interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its rapid evolution and integration into our everyday practices, tension exists between physicians and consumers regarding the role of AI and digital health tools in healthcare. And while innovation is the key to advancing digital health, and a plethora of new digital health tools have the potential to revolutionize healthcare, we must employ them wisely. In this session, Chief Medical Officer of WebMD Dr. John Whyte invites audiences to discuss the most top-of-mind concerns where AI and healthcare intersect, including the following: — While physicians think of AI and Digital health tools as mainly serving administrative functions, consumers often use these tools to save them a trip to the doctor’s office. Can we strike a balance between these two perspectives and decide on the proper roles of these “smart” tools? — How do we effectively utilize this collected data to create better health outcomes and inform clinical decision-making to improve patient care? — What level of collaboration might need to be established between healthcare providers, patients, and technology companies to develop standards and best practices for using this data responsibly and effectively? — How do we improve or create regulations to foster innovation and ensure patient-centered care?

Instead of having to wait to call a doctor to get an appointment in a few weeks, you can get a telemedicine visit with one more click. You can now order your own lab tests without a doctor’s order and do them in the privacy of your home. Apps can check for skin cancer and determine whether you need new glasses.
