Machine learning to enable Healthcare to render Value-based Care efficiently

“Meanwhile, there is a huge shift from volume of care to value-based care. In this scenario, 54% of CEOs of hospitals see the shift from volume to value as their biggest financial question. And, two-thirds of IT budgets of healthcare institutions is used to keep the lights on,” says a senior associate at Amazon web Services, co-presenter of a HIMSS20 Digital presentation on machine learning and unstructured data.

Machine learning plays an interesting role that necessarily do not intend to replace workflows. Nonetheless, it gives a superpower to healthcare workers and allow them to perform their jobs more efficiently.

Meanwhile, value-based care creates lot of data to find use for health IT leaders. When a patient undergoes various stages of care, lot of data is created as a result of immense documentation.

The question is how to make use of available resources so healthcare is rendered in a more streamlined manner. Conversely, a lot of currently used healthcare IT models lack agility to keep pace with technology. Reiterating, it’s about accentuating position of people in this space and giving them a superpower. This is to help them bring forth the right data and use it to make benefitting clinical decisions.
