AHA, Microsoft offer AI course

A free course to help health care leaders prepare to implement artificial intelligence (AI) tools is discusses in a recent blog post by AHA Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer and AONL CEO Robyn Begley and Molly McCarthy, national director, U.S. health providers and health plans at Microsoft. “AI is driving innovation, process improvements and better patient outcomes. It’s enhancing providers’ ability to care for more patients safely,” they assert while acknowledging fears about the impact AI could have on the health care workforce. They recommend the course, saying it aims “to guide health care teams through key considerations and specific actions for AI’s responsible and strategic implementation.” (AHA News article, 11/5/20)
