It is expected that analytics and Artificial Intelligence will transform all sectors of Canada’s economy, including healthcare. Some analytics and AI solutions are already transforming healthcare delivery and improving the quality of care for the patients.
Analytics is used to develop scheduling models to reduce wait times for surgeries or imaging. Artificial intelligence, and specifically the so-called machine learning, is used to help with diagnostics or with the interpretation of lab results.
