AI Helps Streamline Some Health Care Tasks, Prompts Caution With Others

Recently it’s been difficult to underestimate artificial intelligence’s (AI) reach across health care entities such as specialty pharmacies, infusion providers and pharma companies. While AI has helped streamline many processes, its ultimate impact may be debatable at this point, and caution in certain areas is warranted, according to some industry experts.

“AI-enabled solutions have transformed the specialty pharmacy and home infusion industries,” contends Mesfin Tegenu, CEO and chairman of RxParadigm, Inc. He notes that AI’s subset of machine learning (ML) uses algorithms to find patterns and make predictions, leading to streamlined operations, better patient care and optimized resource allocations, all of which have the potential to result in cost savings.
