Will AI Replace Healthcare Workers? No, But It Will Turn Them Into Tech Workers

Mar 9, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

AI will transform healthcare workers into tech workers in the next few years. The industry will no longer rely solely on medical pedigree but rather on how clinicians and other healthcare workers understand and apply technology to the work they do.

This skills transformation, and the creation of an AI-powered organization, will require a new model for education and hiring for the healthcare industry.

This dynamic panel will explore ways the healthcare workforce will evolve in the next few years. Panelists will explore what skills will be top of mind, how medical education is evolving to focus on technology innovation, and what these new skills will mean for patients. Attendees of the discussion will be informed on what they need to be successful in the healthcare workforce of the future and the tools that can help them accelerate health innovation through science & technology for the benefit of all patients.
