Facing the Healthcare Implementation Crisis

March 5, 2018
12:10pm - 12:40pm
Lafleur

Despite excitement surrounding machine learning in healthcare, examples of full-fledged integration in day-to-day health system operations remains the exception, not the rule. Duke’s Institute for Health Innovation is in its third year developing and piloting machine learning technologies in clinical care.

To benefit from the full potential of machine learning, healthcare must step back from the trenches to acknowledge breakthroughs in technology, address barriers to progress, and critically reflect on the strategic priorities necessary to bring healthcare into a new digital age.

In this session, speakers will address the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to machine learning in healthcare.

Key discussion points:

  • New career development opportunities must be created for clinical trainees to develop next-generation technologies.
  • Methodology and infrastructure must be developed to ensure robust machine learning model performance despite dynamic EHR data.
  • Healthcare must shift focus from celebrating isolated successes to fostering an ecosystem that supports exponential growth of interactions.
