Accenture’s Digital Health Technology Vision 2018 report found that many health care organizations are woefully shy of the necessary capabilities to properly handle artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) in an evolving business.
According to a Healthcare Informatics report, more than three-quarters of 100 health executives surveyed declared their intention to pursue investments in IoT, while 53 percent plan to invest in AI.
However, 86 percent of those surveyed said they had not invested in tools to verify data sources, and 24 percent of them said they had noticed problematic AI behaviors.
“Intelligent technologies, such as AI, are enabling health organizations to evolve at speed, collaborate with other entities and create deeper, more meaningful relationships with patients across various care settings,” Accenture’s Kaveh Safavi, head of global health practice, said in a statement. “As this paradigm-shifting technology evolves—making business more dynamic than ever before — organizations will remain responsible for demonstrating data stewardship and designing systems with trust and transparency to bolster the societal benefits of these technologies.”
