Artificial intelligence (AI) has come a long way since being formally established as a field in 1956. Today, AI operates seamlessly in most every facet of our daily lives—and increasingly into more and more aspects of healthcare and how nurses are caring for people, and for entire populations. With the amount of health data and the rate at which we’re generating it, combined with the extraordinary computing power of machines, we're at a point where AI can see patterns we can't and tell us things we didn't know, before they happen!
In this episode, we meet nurse and innovation sherpa Robbie Freeman, MSN, RN, NE-BC, and learn how he and his team of clinicians, data scientists, and engineers are working with an interesting array of technology partners to design and embed AI into hospital operations and clinical workflows. This work supports nurses, doctors, and care teams in predicting and better managing clinical situations while keeping people safe, involving patients more deeply in their care, and ushering in a moonshot for healthcare that Robbie characterizes as “Precision Nursing”—delivering the right care to the right person, in the best way, at the ideal moment.
