Healthcare Leader launches The Rise of the Machines: AI, digital and data in healthcare report today looking at how this technology will impact healthcare.

This report builds on our roundtable Healthcare data: How ICBs can encourage patient trust with data experts and integrated care board (ICB) leaders and is informed by a survey on attitudes to AI among our audience.

The findings, outlined in this report, highlight the tension between the positive attitudes to AI among leading clinicians set against the concerns around data sharing.

We also outline the potential and pitfalls of AI in healthcare where leaders in the field discuss current successes and concerns.

To gain greater insight on developments in this area, we spoke to Microsoft UK’s managing director of government, healthcare and life sciences, Jacob West, NHS Greater Manchester’s chief intelligence and analytics officer, Matt Hennessey and BT’s director of healthcare at the enterprise unit, Professor Sultan Mahmud.

The report also examines the role of data governance which is often cited as a real barrier to progress in this area.

Editor, Victoria Vaughan, says: ‘The hype around healthcare and AI is huge and keeping up with the market and capabilities in this area is a challenge.

‘This report brings together the views of clinicians and the projections of experts with great reporting on areas of concern, such as trust and data governance, to provide an in-depth look at this area.’
