Despite expansion in health insurance coverage, emergency rooms are seeing a larger and aging population, sicker patients who arrive in immediate danger with more chronic conditions, physician shortages as care is expanded, a need for more expensive technical tools, and an unsustainable trend in costs and expenditures. Partial rescue from these challenges may be coming from the most unlikely of sources: artificial intelligence. These aren't robots, but smart apps and tools that can reduce cognitive emergency room burdens, while increasing diagnostic speed, precision and accuracy. Read Dr. Mandavia’s U.S. News & World Report article that discusses the arrival of artificial intelligence and how it is poised to have a transformative impact on emergency department teams and the broader world of medical diagnostics.
