Demystifying the Jargon: Unpacking the Essentials of Clinical AI

Despite the buzz and excitement around Clinical AI in healthcare, we often find ourselves wrestling with the basic understanding. But fret not, it's time to clear the fog! Let’s take a closer look at what Clinical AI really means.

Clinical Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

Clinical AI, in the simplest terms, refers to the application of artificial intelligence systems in healthcare and medical practices. Clinical AI means that an algorithm is providing predictive clinical decisions support outputs. It encompasses the use of complex algorithms and software to emulate human cognition in the analysis, interpretation, and comprehension of complicated medical imaging and healthcare data.

But why should we care about Clinical AI?

Because it plays a pivotal role in modern healthcare and currently represents approximately 80% of all AI currently deployed in our US healthcare systems. And it's a role that continues to expand and evolve. It assists in diagnosing diseases, predicting patient outcomes, personalizing treatment plans, and even automating workflow tasks. The potential of AI to improve patient care and outcomes is simply astounding.

Yet, as exciting as the potential is, it's the real-world applications that truly highlight the transformative power of Clinical AI. It's not just a futuristic healthcare application. Today the average age of a Clinicla AI solution is 7 years and there are currently over 318 stand-alone regulated clinical AI solutions with FDA clearances. Whether it’s the use of AI in radiology for more accurate imaging interpretation, or in pathology to identify patterns in disease progression that the human eye simply can't detect, or in identify and ordering flagged medical imaging finds to clinicians - Clinical AI is at the heart of a healthcare revolution.

The future of doing more with less, improving patient outcomes and improving health equity is being reshaped by Clinical AI. And while the journey is complex, the destination promises a transformation in healthcare delivery and outcomes that would have been unthinkable a few short decades ago.

So, whether you're a clinician trying to understand the Clinical AI impact on your practice, or a healthcare administrator exploring technological advancements to improve services, remember: Clinical AI isn’t just a buzzword. It's an essential tool in our evolving healthcare landscape. The Clinical AI wave is here, and with the FDA predicting more than 1,000 clinical AI solutions by 2027 the tsunami is coming.

Making sense of the solutions already on the market, their potential outcomes they provide are time consuming. Additionally understanding the deployment and infrastructure IT and security needs can make it overwhelming.

Our team has co-developed more than 7 clinical AI solutions and architected more than 14 medical AI product solutions. We have the subject matter expertise to understand what is happening in the "AI Black Box". In order to ensure every healthcare system is capable of adopting these new tools, we've developed both Adaptive AI Planning and Monitoring services.

Let's connect! We cut through the hype and help you makes sense of Clinical AI. Let's develop an appropriate Clinical AI Roadmap for your healthcare system.
