AI from the Healthcare Business Perspective Presented by Samuel Waissman

As presented at HBMA's Innovation Conference March 5th-7th, 2024.

In 2023, AI has become one of the hottest topics, in the first 10 months of 2023 web searches tripled and reached over 30.4 million searches in March alone (1). AI offers the promise of revolutionizing business processes with automation and sophistication. It can automate tasks that were previously challenging, such as authorization & denial follow ups, contact center interactions, complex coding challenges, and real-time recommendations. 

However, simply acquiring AI technology is not enough for success. Businesses need to go beyond technical implementation and consider the impact on people, processes, and tools.

This chat will focus on a business-centric approach to AI. We will discuss the factors businesses should consider before, during, and after implementing AI. Drawing on industry best practices and proven knowledge, we will explore how businesses can prepare themselves to fully leverage AI, mitigate risks, and ultimately reap its benefits.
