Can AI help solve the challenge of physician burnout?

How can artificial intelligence help physicians who are overloaded with quality measures and administrative tasks that pull them away from patient care? Can AI help address the alarming increase in exhaustion and depression among clinicians? In his second Inside Angle podcast episode, Juggy Jagannathan, PhD, research director and AI evangelist at 3M M*Modal, explains how AI can ease the administrative burden by capturing the clinician/patient interaction in real time.

"With advances in AI, maybe people will start focusing more on outcome measures and less on these nitty-gritty process measures... For quality measures, use AI to extract the information automatically from the patient-physician encounter information. That’s one type of AI---natural-language understanding and extraction---which is happening today to various degrees."
