Smaller practices are standing at the edge of a new era of AI and BI. These technologies are scaled to work in non-enterprise scenarios and can bring your patients and staff an improved experience.
While healthcare AI has seen some of its most promising use cases in the hospital revenue cycle, smaller practices can also take advantage of AI. The American Medical Association outlines multiple ways primary care can apply artificial intelligence, including digital health coaching for chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, and device integration to leverage the wearables your patients are most interested in. And AI can be used for population health initiatives, helping you manage social determinants of health while closing care gaps and optimizing performance under Medicare quality payment programs.
When planned correctly, these efforts will feed into next gen BI that uses 5G technology. 5G can allow smaller practices to leverage business intelligence that supports advanced supply chain management, optimizes patient flow and utilization, and improves staff allocation while reducing patient wait times.
