What can AI Deliver Today and What Are We Really Ready For?

HIMSS Europe11 - 13 June 2019, Helsinki, Finland.
The highly anticipated track about AI at the HIMSS & Health 2.0 Conference 2019 is called "AI Beyond the Buzz". We hear about Artificial Intelligence all the time, but how many of us are actually putting it into practice, using it or implementing it in a clinical setting? Not as many as you might have thought. According to a recent survey conducted by Technology Review, 40% of organisations who claim they are using AI are in fact not.

Why are we struggling with AI? Are we simply not ready for it in healthcare? Miikka Korja, Chief Innovation Officer at the Helsinki University Hospital in Finland has collaborated in the making of this track and will be sharing his thoughts and experiences on the topic. In his first session, Korja proposes a reality check: What can AI deliver TODAY and what are we really ready for?

The HIMSS & Health 2.0 European Conference 2019 has also selected a number of out-of-the-box session themes for the "Radical Health Outlook Track". Some on the session topics will examine global societal trends which will affect healthcare such as climate change, refugees and migrant health. These sessions will also explore how the health and care sector will respond to these issues. Santino Severoni, Coordinator for Public Health and Migration at the World Health Organization (WHO) has been confirmed as a guest expert speaker on this topic. The full programme can be found on the conference website.

Bruce Steinberg, Managing Director and EVP at HIMSS International, said "We are so excited to host this European conference in Helsinki in June. The Nordic region is an exemplar for outstanding healthcare and we hope that It will enable our global members and delegates to better understand the role that technology, culture and innovation is playing in advancing healthcare in the region. In fact, our host country, Finland, was recently ranked as having one of top three strongest health technology economies worldwide. The support we have already received in the run up to this conference is overwhelming, and I truly hope the entire digital health ecosystem will view this as an exciting opportunity to see how that innovation is applied to health first hand."
