Hospital information security teams and IT shops are in a precarious spot: They have to not only protect information cybercriminals increasingly see as more valuable than other types, but they also have to safeguard against the next big threat when it’s impossible to know what it will be or when it might strike. It also doesn't help that new types of attacks are emerging just about every month, too: WannaCry, Petya-NotPetya, Locky, just to name a few.
This special project explains why cybersecurity is top of mind for nearly all healthcare organizations as they plan for the future.
There remains a lot of hype about artificial intelligence in healthcare – the potential is very much there, but the reality is the industry is a while away from AI algorithms transforming everyday care. One reason for this is that most hospitals are still on a journey of updating their tools and processes for the digital age. Pagers and fax machines remain a common fixture in even the most digitally mature healthcare organizations.
But that's all changing, and it's happening faster than you can say "Hey, Siri."
This special project looks at the areas where AI, machine learning and cognitive computing are already driving major gains, highlighting case studies, thought leadership and best practices that can help healthcare move AI beyond science fiction for good.
Here's the low-down: Despite the massive leaps forward in knowledge since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, the healthcare industry has yet to grapple with the big changes to people, processes and technology needed to truly capitalize on precision medicine.
From EHRs to interoperability to clinical decision support, healthcare as an industry does not have the technological infrastructure in place yet to advance precision med. But that's all about to change — and quickly.
This special project looks at what the healthcare industry must do to get to the point where care is more personalized than ever.
What can hospitals do now to prepare for the future of population health management? A lot, really.
Start by understanding what products will best meet your particular needs, know that social determinants of health and patient-generated data will only become more and more important and recognize that as pop health programs evolve so too, will hospitals’ expectations for the technologies that underpin them.
This special project looks at some of the specifics healthcare organizations must embrace to avoid being stuck in the past.
