The Credibility of AI, the Future of the EHR, and Cultural Demands with John Halamka
January 7, 2022: John Halamka, MD, President of the Mayo Clinic Platform is our Keynote guest today. What’s the promise of AI in healthcare? Why are we pursuing it? What are the challenges that remain in its adoption? Where does the technology stand in terms of transparency and useful testing ability? What are the three main problems with EHR data sets and how can we address them? How far away are we from solid clinical use cases with wrist wearables? Are we getting to real quality data that can be used? And can we call the EHR a platform? Or is it still a transactional system?

00:06:00 – AI has a credibility problem in healthcare
00:07:30 – Algorithms are mostly probabilistic, multi-tiered mathematical equations that don’t necessarily have easy explainability
00:19:00 – Is the EHR a platform? Or is it more like a transactional system with aspects of a platform?
00:20:10 – The perfect storm for innovation is an alignment of technology, policy and culture.
00:31:35 – You can augment humans to make them wildly more productive if they’re doing review rather than authorship
