World Medical Innovation Forum 2019 presents a discussion on the future of AI in emergency care. Key points ranging from the initial decision to seek emergency care, to diagnostic processes within the ED and final disposition decision are included in the discussion.
There are over 136 million Emergency Department visits annually in the U.S. providing 24/7 unscheduled treatment for problems from minor illness to life-threatening traumatic injuries. Emergency department care teams provide high quality, safe care in an efficient fashion. In this session, we consider the future of AI in emergency care from the initial decision to seek emergency care, to diagnostic processes within the ED and final disposition decision.. From chatbots for patient triage, telehealth for patient visits to machine learning outcome prediction, we will consider how these novel technologies will impact emergency care delivery.
