The article discusses the evolving role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare, emphasizing the importance of including patients as co-creators and end-users to ensure the technology meets their needs effectively. Dr. Grace Cordovano highlights the proactive efforts by patient communities in leveraging AI for better healthcare outcomes, challenging the industry to recognize and value their contributions. Deloitte's report on Generative AI (GenAI) in healthcare and the Pew Research findings reveal mixed sentiments among providers and consumers regarding the pace of AI adoption, underlining the potential trust and efficacy issues.

The article also highlights successful applications such as ambient listening technologies for clinical note-taking, demonstrating AI's potential to enhance patient-clinician interactions and health equity. Finally, it calls for comprehensive inclusion and responsible AI implementation, aligning with WHO's guidance on AI ethics and governance, to ensure no patient is left behind in the digital transformation of healthcare.
