Assignment Question

Prepare a respond on a student response on Technological Innovations/Advances.

Professor Initial Post: There are already machine-learning systems that are more accurate at making differential diagnoses than most physicians and these systems are only getting smarter. Fifty-three percent of Kaiser’s patient visits last year were done by smartphone, videoconference or kiosk. It’s impossible to predict what’s going to evolve with technology. Artificial Intelligence (AI )innovation will change the way we practice medicine. You as a healthcare administer, what do you see as your biggest challenge?

Student response: The healthcare industry is competitive and technological advances play an important yet costly role. Many healthcare organizations have started offering telehealth and telemedicine. They increase patient access to care while modernizing practices of healthcare organizations but may be accompanied with costly start-up or maintenance fees. Providers can treat patients without the patient ever having to step foot in the clinic or hospital. A large majority of all healthcare organizations have moved to electronic healthcare records which makes it easier for specialists or external providers to obtain information regarding the patient’s treatment however, it increases risk for cyberattacks and personal identifiable information breaches. In 2019, there were hundreds of healthcare data breaches exposing millions of individual records and costing U.S. healthcare organizations an average of $15 million per 25,575 records (Seh et al., 2020). I think our biggest challenges as healthcare administrators will be preventing against cyberattacks on our electronic health record systems, misdiagnosis from becoming so dependent on technology, and the millions of dollars it will take to recover from these challenges.
