|Growth Opportunities in Artificial Intelligence and Analytics in Surgery, 2020|
|Landscape and Opportunity Assessment in an Emerging Area|
Artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics technologies are now being well accepted in healthcare, with bellwether clinical application areas (e.g., radiology), and operational application areas (e.g., revenue cycle management). One area of the hospital that perhaps needs the most attention, is the hospital operating room (OR). The OR is a hospital’s highest revenue generator but is also a high cost center. The OR is also ridden with inefficiencies and challenges that prevent hospitals from utilizing them to their fullest potential. On a clinical front as well, significant innovation leaps have eluded the surgery space. This has primarily been the result of mammoth manual efforts required to address those challenges. The advent of AI and analytics, however, is set to change the conventional OR and allied areas (e.g., endoscopy procedures).
