The AI Revolution Is Coming in Emergency Care
Artificial intelligence is poised to have a transformative impact on emergency department teams and the broader world of medical diagnostics.
There are now more than 145 millionemergency department visits nationwide in the U.S.
Today, despite expansion in health insurance coverage, ERs are seeing a larger and aging population, sicker patients who arrive in immediate danger with more chronic conditions, physician shortages as we expand care, a need for more expensive technical tools, and an unsustainable trend in costs and expenditures.
Partial rescue from these challenges may be coming from the most unlikely of sources: artificial intelligence. These aren't robots, but smart apps and tools that can reduce cognitive ER burdens, while increasing diagnostic speed, precision and accuracy.
