Time again for a quick look around the Twittersphere from the HIMSS 2016 conference in Las Vegas.

I talked with Rasu about this at RSNA. The problem with this is that simple is harder to do.

I think we can already benefit from AI and automation even if the silos aren’t broken down. We shouldn’t wait.

Certainly we can’t predict things 100%, but we can predict many things with pretty solid accuracy if we have the right data points. We shouldn’t allow the fact that we can’t predict perfectly keep us from doing our best to predict future healthcare conditions.

This shift is certainly in the air at HIMSS. Payers are following CMS’ lead.

My only complaint with this picture is that they should be juggling about 300 more items.
