Healthcare Layer Cake

healthcare automationIn this podcast, we continue to explore the question: Could a physician really be replaced by a computer? One of the factors driving healthcare costs today  is the “layering” of the system with non-physician staff who are interposed between the physician and the patient.  These can be physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other technical non-physician staff. These layers help spread the scarce physician resource over a broad range of patients, but diminishes the ability to build a strong patient physician relationship. It may be easier for hospitals, clinics and other health provider organizations to tap into a robust artificial intelligence infrastructure to eliminate the scarce resource, delayer the system of care, and improve patient satisfcaton at the same time.

Tell us what you think.
