HOW AI CAN CHANGE THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE
Featuring Kaveh Safavi, Accenture’s global health industry lead, and Brian Kalis, Accenture’s digital health lead
There is tremendous excitement about how artificial intelligence (AI) could change health care. New AI technologies are being developed to streamline administrative and clinical processes, and venture capital is pouring in to fund dozens of new AI health care startups.
And, it appears the excitement is justified. Accenture investigated the value of several promising AI applications and found that they could create up to $150 billion in annual savings for U.S. health care by 2026.
On Thursday, March 7, 2019, leaders from Accenture’s health care practice—Kaveh Safavi and Brian Kalis—will share findings from their investigation of AI applications in health care. They will discuss:
Which types of administrative and clinical problems AI is best able to help solve
Where AI applications are most likely to be adopted and used
Which AI applications are likely to deliver the greatest value
They will share examples of AI being used on the front lines of care and to manage costly back-office problems and inefficiencies.
If your organization is considering AI applications but isn’t sure where to get started or which applications can provide the greatest value, join Safavi, Kalis and HBR on March 7.

HOW TO MEASURE AND IMPROVE POPULATION HEALTH
Featuring Sandro Galea, MD, Robert A. Knox Professor and Dean of the Boston University School of Public Health; Author, HBR article, “Why It’s Hard to Measure Improved Population Health”
Programs to improve health care almost always have a goal of improving population health. This sounds like an obvious and appropriate goal.
But what really matters is how population health is measured. In most instances what is measured is overall health, which can often be improved by focusing on low-hanging fruit. This means improving the health of groups that are easily accessible and most amenable to changing their behaviors. However, focusing on overall health can widen health gaps, improving health for some but leaving marginalized communities behind.
Sandro Galea, dean of the Boston University School of Public Health, calls for different ways to measure population health that close gaps and improve health equity.
Discuss issues with how population health is often measured
Suggest different, better ways to measure population health to produce different outcomes
Outline alternative strategies and approaches for improving population health
Provide a different way of thinking about population health
If you and your organization care deeply about improving health and are concerned about continuing issues such as health equity, disparities, and gaps in care, join Sandro Galea on February 7 for new ideas about measuring and improving population health.
