Will AI Improve Healthcare in an Ethical Way?

There are a lot of challenging aspects of incorporating artificial intelligence into healthcare. In the first part of this two-part series on AI in healthcare, Dr. Jason Jones, Chief Analytics and Data Science Officer at HealthCatalyst, talked with host Daniel Litwin.

On this episode of Owning The Future Of Healthcare, a podcast from HealthCatalyst, your leading provider of data and analytics technology services to healthcare organizations, Jones and Litwin dug further into AI and healthcare and incorporating this innovation into healthcare ethically.

AI is transforming healthcare operations, access and more. In most cases, it’s a tool that can assist providers in crafting a broader approach to patient-centric care. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the healthcare system to accelerate adaption and adopt more AI solution.

Digital tools were brought in to help the healthcare system stay afloat, but can AI be brought into the fold on a day-to-day basis?

Jones said the usefulness of AI can be put to good, ethical use. AI is currently intersecting with and assisting other digital tools in the healthcare space, such as VR data and telehealth at scale. Telehealth, for example, had been around for the pandemic, but its mass adoption occurred during the pandemic as patients became more willing or preferred its use.

“I think there are parallels now with AI, especially as it has to do both with people considering how we deploy these tools with the greatest effect and how we expand the role,” Jones said.

He said that it’s essential to consider what AI will be used for and do for us, so we’re making sure we’re doing more good than harm.
