Webinar Presentation: Coronavirus: Can Artificial Intelligence Make A Difference?

March 26, 2020

The US health system is at the brink of operating at above capacity and healthcare organizations need clarity on how to address COVID-19 risk within their population and their community more broadly. AI has the ability to deliver intelligence that can assist national response to COVID-19 by : giving insights into which hospitals will have similar experiences and impacts; identifying expected relative risk across geographies; surface high-risk patient populations; and provide clinicians with point-of-care clinical decision support.

Please join us while we discuss some important developments in AI with real-world examples and how providers and communities can apply them to drive optimal outcomes during times like these.​

Presentation recoding, slides, and additional resources are present at the bottom of this page.
