Venky Ananth, Vice President, Healthcare, Infosys

Why attend the session:

The importance of automation in health care has increased dramatically. Despite more demand for value-based care, improved patient outcomes, regulations, global competition, pricing pressure and the need for more precision medicines, the U.S. market is poised for a technology transition that will aid future business; it is already a major contributor to the growth of AI in health care. In this sessions attendees explore critical questions like:

  • Where are we now and what’s next? Gain an in-depth understanding of what AI means in health care.
  • How do we overcome extra challenges including regulatory barriers, interoperability with legacy hospital IT systems, and serious limitations on access to crucial medical data needed to build powerful health-focused algorithms in the first place?
  • How do we move forward and make Artificial Intelligence more scalable and cost-efficient?
