One of the biggest gaps that I see within organizations is when there’s NOT a senior leader that is passionate about the value data and what it can provide. As much as I love AI, AI can't exist without the data. At the end of the day, it's math and science with some art mixed in but it's the data that's really telling. So if you have an AI champion evangelizing and promoting that with the right team framework, the right hardware and software applications and the right processes for that organization to be successful, then they're going to do so.
At the end of the day, or at the end of this light in the tunnel, what we want to do is ultimately stop treating the disease and treat the patient holistically. And if we can do that using augmentation through AI, we should be able to reduce costs, reduce the number of treatments and other associations for diagnosis and get a patient in and out the door, faster and happier.
