The Time to Transform Healthcare with AI is Now

The healthcare industry faces a host of oncoming pressures, including increasing demands for care, rising costs, and shortages of clinicians and staff. By 2050, 25% of North America and Europe will be over 65, and those populations will need complex care. Managing this demand is expensive and requires a shift in focus from episodic to proactive care. Artificial intelligence technology, deployed to both clinical and operational applications, is already proving to be a critical support to health systems meeting the needs of patients now and in the years to come. 

In this session, the Executive Medical Director of Oncology Services at St. Elizabeth Healthcare performs a deep dive into the history, future, and most impactful opportunities for use of AI in healthcare. After giving an overview of AI’s foundations and development in recent years, the session will explore the many clinical and operational instances of AI and the companies and healthcare organizations whose innovations are worth watching out for. 

The operational uses of AI, including capacity management, are already being deployed by health system partners of LeanTaaS via the iQueue suite. These uses include helping healthcare stakeholders achieve efficient patient discharges and create level-loaded appointment and procedure schedules, as well as promoting system-wide visibility into patient flows and capacities of operating rooms, infusion chairs, and inpatient beds. Learn how AI is uniquely positioned to solve these challenges and others in healthcare today. 

Viewers of this webinar will be able to: 

  • Explain the rising costs and demand challenges facing healthcare
  • Analyze current innovations in clinical and operational AI by leading startups and health systems
  • Evaluate how AI solutions like LeanTaaS’ iQueue are already optimizing hospital capacity and humanizing care


AI can improve healthcare data analysis for better management of capacity.
AI can support more accurate diagnosis and treatment predictions.
AI frees medical staff from administrative burdens to “humanize” healthcare, giving clinicians more time with their patients.
I’ll talk about the ways that technology can help us humanize our care of patients, find those efficiencies that we currently lack, and hopefully give us precious hours back with the patients…rather than spending four or five hours on [the EHR] typing. I'll gonna make the argument that the time to transform medicine with AI is now.
