Summary
At the HIMSS conference in Orlando, Hackensack Meridian Health CEO Robert Garrett emphasized AI's transformative potential in healthcare, particularly in building healthier communities at an unprecedented scale and pace. Garrett outlined four critical areas where AI could make a significant impact: increasing access to care, improving patient outcomes, advancing health equity, and addressing climate change. He highlighted examples like the partnership between Indian digital healthcare platform Apollo 24|7 and Google Cloud for AI-powered telemedicine, and Grifols' collaboration with Google Cloud to develop new plasma-based drugs. Garrett also pointed out the use of AI in early detection and treatment pathways, such as an AI tool by Carenostics for advanced kidney disease diagnosis and an app from Phoenix Children's Hospital for identifying malnutrition in pediatric patients. Additionally, Garrett spoke on the need for AI to address social determinants of health and climate change's health impacts, stressing the urgency of developing solutions that are energy-efficient and reduce pollution.
