  • AI LA: AI & RPA as the Next Wave of Efficiency in Healthcare
    Cross-promoting this meetup that Todd Terrazas is organizing and we're speaking at: See details and RSVP at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-next-wave-of-productivity-and-efficiency-in-healthcare-tickets-44683153515 We'll discuss Robotic Process Automation and AI in administrative, financial, operational and clinical processes of healthcare organizations. The healthcare industry is not known to be a highly productive and efficient compared to other industries like Manufacturing, Banking, Retail, Automotive, etc. Imagine if you created an army of “software employees” that can help you perform tasks 24X7 in an automated fashion with minimal human intervention? What will the healthcare industry look like then? How will it change care costs and patient experience?
