I recently presented at a client conference, discussing the disruptive potential of AI in healthcare. We think of it more as an evolution, rather than a revolution, given the typical slower adoption curves that we see in healthcare. Having said that, we do see two obvious initial use cases for artificial intelligence in healthcare. The first of which is in healthcare administration, so helping to reduce the complexities, reduce waste and inefficiencies, and even helping physicians reduce cumbersome paperwork and enabling them to spend more time on patient care. And the second use is in clinical diagnosis. Importantly, though, we see the use of artificial intelligence in this context more as a co-pilot rather than an autopilot.
