Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation is reshaping whole industries – from manufacturing to banking and health care – and almost every other enterprise. In the health care industry, for example, AI is being investigated to prevent dosage errors; provide personalized medicine, automatic treatment or recommendation; manage the high cost of back-office challenges and inefficiencies by eliminating time-consuming, non-patient care activities; detect claim fraud; and other applications and tasks. Many fear significant job losses as a result of a digital workforce, but the flip side is that this transformation comes with real opportunities for those ready to embrace technology advancement. Technology can never replace the human touch, but it can help take over mundane tasks and give providers, nurses, and caretakers the opportunity to innovate. With the proper training and skillsets and the support of employers, whole new careers are open to health care workers eager to leverage technology advancements.
