Healthcare, including pharma, medical devices, healthcare providers, and payers, is a highly regulated industry, and therefore can be slow to adopt new technologies and modernise. However, the healthcare industry is realising the benefits artificial intelligence (AI) can bring, and it is now being used in different areas across the entire value chain. Additionally, its use in the healthcare space is expected to continue to increase in the next five years. 

Leading hospital companies in AI 

ML and data science are the two most important subsets of AI, and hospitals and payers must invest in these technologies across all parts of the value chain. AI can assist with treatment decisions for physicians and other healthcare providers by analysing patient data to recommend treatment plans or assist with diagnosis and screening, thereby reducing physician workload.

AI can also motivate and interact with patients and investing in conversational platforms for end users can help in symptom assessment, patient triage, and improving patient outcomes. AI can also be utilised in hospitals to provide an efficient and seamless patient experience that allows hospitals and healthcare professionals to treat more patients daily. 

Leading adopters of AI in hospitals include UnitedHealth, CVS Health, Humana, and Mayo Clinic
