Conferences

Health insurance provider Humana is hoping to utilize AI technologies as it works to advance its integrated care delivery model with digital tools, Heather Cox, the company’s chief digital health and analytics officer, said during the HIMSS conference on Feb. 12 in Orlando.

Though AI’s wide implementation into healthcare is still in its beginning stages, a Seattle-based health system recently showcased how it’s using the technology to alleviate physician burnout and improve health outcomes at the HIMSS conference in Orlando.

As the use of digital health tools continues to grow, developers will be expected to prove how the technology can benefit the healthcare industry, according to a new HIMSS report.

On the heels last week’s announcement of Uber’s healthcare-focused initiative, Lyft has agreed to partner with Allscripts to offer ride-sharing services to patients through physicians and hospitals.

At HIMSS 2018, Nuance Communications and Epic announced a partnership that will integrate Nuance's new artificial intelligence (AI)-powered virtual assistant platform into Epic’s electronic health record (EHR).

Orion Health has announced its machine learning system, Amadeus Intelligence, could improve patient care while reducing operating costs by minimizing waste.

Embracing artificial intelligence (AI) technology is “a necessity” for the health IT industry, according to Harold “Hal” Wolf III, the next president and CEO of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
