The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation Center is planning to launch a new artificial intelligence challenge in 2019 to uncover new uses for AI and analytics in health care.
According to a Healthcare IT News report, the Artificial Intelligence Health Outcomes Challenge will promote cross-industry competition to advance overall patient health and clinical care.
“The goal is to help the healthcare system deliver the right care, at the right time, in the right place, and by the right people,” CMS officials reportedly said. “It’s not enough to build on the technology that currently exists. We need to ask bold questions, like how artificial intelligence can transform and disrupt how we think about healthcare delivery.”
