The 2019 World Medical Innovation Forum will focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its growing impact on clinical care.
The Forum is a global conference of more than 1,700 senior health care leaders in the heart of Boston. It was established to respond to the intensifying transformation of health care and its impact on innovation. The Forum is rooted in the belief that no matter the magnitude of that change, the center of health care needs to be a shared, fundamental commitment to collaborative innovation – industry and academia working together to improve patient lives.
AI, machine learning, and advanced technologies are pushing the boundaries in healthcare. These solutions hold immense potential to advance the quality of patient care, reduce costs, and improve outcomes. Nevertheless, the complex healthcare landscape makes it challenging to translate these breakthroughs into the clinic. Navigating the medical, operational, economic and ethical impacts of these solutions is required to ensure that patients, providers and healthcare organizations rapidly benefit.
This year's meeting will bring together global leaders in the emerging discipline of artificial intelligence and machine learning for in-depth conversations on the fast-developing novel technologies that characterize this early era of adoption. Impact on patients, clinicians and systems will be examined in depth. The Forum panels, consisting of industry and investment executives, teamed with Harvard clinical and research leaders, will focus on patient interactions across care settings, and the role technology and data can play in advancing knowledge discovery and care delivery.
