4 Near-Term AI Predictions from ViVE

March 19, 2024 Providence News Team

Thousands of health care leaders gathered at the 2024 ViVE conference in Los Angeles to explore challenges and opportunities facing health care delivery and how they might be solved or advanced from a health information-management and technology perspective. Speakers highlighted the potential benefits of emerging digital health technology, particularly artificial intelligence (AI). 

One of the four predictions on the use of AI in health care is that clinicians will invite an AI co-pilot into their decision-making. While there seems to be little interest in letting AI make actual clinical decisions at this time, clinical decision support that focuses on advising the next best action can serve as a co-pilot to clinicians, said Eve Cunningham, M.D., chief of virtual care and digital health at Providence. “Medical knowledge doubles every 73 days,” she said, making it impossible for providers to keep up without some sort of augmented intelligence. Providence is using MedPearl, a digital-assistant tool developed by Cunningham, with select primary care providers, and has found that it increases appropriate referrals to specialty care and more complete workups for those patients before their specialty appointment, thereby reducing the time to diagnosis and treatment. The tool analyzes patient data in the electronic health record (EHR) and displays related medical information and actions within the same EHR screen.
