Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of health care delivery, as evidenced by the FDA's approval of more than 300 medical AI systems by June 2021. Many people now believe that, “AI will not replace physicians, but physicians who use AI will replace physicians who don't.” Yet, incorporating AI into health care delivery calls for a rethink and redesign of day-to-day workflows, an undertaking that most health care systems are not ready for. This webinar features leading experts who have worked with clinicians in implementing AI in clinical practice to discuss the challenges and opportunities for business and AI researchers, as well as clinical practitioners.
