What Parkland Can Teach Other Hospitals About AI in Health Care

Summary of article from Dallas Morning News:

Parkland Health is actively utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) in medical practices, including trauma patient treatment and assisting doctors with paperwork. The technology analyzes patient data and updates survival probabilities in real time, while also transcribing doctors’ notes. Despite potential AI biases and inaccuracies, Parkland mitigates these risks through regular model reviews. The hospital, an early adopter of electronic health records and a member of Duke University’s Health AI partnership corps, has leveraged AI to predict patient needs and manage patient loads. Being a public hospital, Parkland strategically implements thoroughly vetted AI tools or collaborates with the Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation on new technologies.
