Healthcare to Focus on Training Machines—and People—in the Future
Thursday, July 16, 2015

Healthcare executives expect that, within the next three years, their industry will need to focus as much on training machines as they do on training people, according to one finding from Accenture 2015 Healthcare IT Vision. Specifically, 84 percent of health executives surveyed agree or strongly agree that healthcare industry will need to focus as much on training machines – such as using algorithms, intelligent software, and machine learning – as they do on training people in the next three years. In fact, most of those surveyed (83 percent) agree that provider organizations, driven by a surge in clinical data, will soon need to manage intelligent machines as well as employees.
