The promise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is that is simplifies clinicians and administrator’s workload by performing tasks normally done by humans in less time and lower costs. One of the areas that hold unlimited promise of AIs potential is healthcare, specifically the pharmaceutical supply chain. Whether it's used to find new links between genetic codes or lessen drug shortages artificial intelligence is reinventing modern healthcare through machines that can predict, comprehend, learn and act. In this session, Jessica Daley will discuss how UPMC is using AI to predict and mitigate drug shortages throughout the UPMC system.
1. Analyze how UPMC is using AI to lessen the impact of drug shortages.
2. Demonstrate the power of AI and how it can impact your IDN with drug shortages.
3. Rank the priorities necessary for you to implement AI to assist you in dealing with drug shortages.
