At this year’s Health Evolution Summit, we will convene the invite-only Executive Briefing: Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning for CEOs and C-suite leaders to demystify the hype and the challenges of leading through the AI revolution.  

“The Executive Briefing on AI & ML was designed for payer and provider CEOs and C-suite leaders to share practical business use cases for AI and ML initiatives that are reducing administrative costs and improving clinical efficiencies,” says Nicole Garratt, SVP of Content and Research at Health Evolution. “One of the unique aspects of this gathering is that provider and payer CEOs will share difficult lessons and insights about governance issues, defining KPIs, insights for culture change and talent acquisition considerations.”

To get the programming started in the morning, Mark McClellan, MD, Director and Robert J. Margolis Professor of Business, Medicine and Health Policy at Duke University, will host a discussion with Amy Abernethy, FDA Deputy Commissioner, on the Federal government’s evaluation and application of AI, including utilizing realworld evidence and market implications of FDA approved diagnostic and autonomous AI systems. 

Following that, CEOs from leading payer and provider organizations – Rod Hochman of Providence St. Joseph, Mark Ganz of Cambia Health, Steve Corwin of NewYork-Presbyterian – will share insights and lessons learned from their AI implementations.     

In the next discussion C-Suite leaders Peter Fleischut, MD, SVP & Chief Transformation Officer of NewYork-Presbyterian, Aaron Martin, EVP & Chief Digital Officer of Providence St. Joseph, and Faraz Shafiq, Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer of Cambia Health will share insights about driving AI initiatives. They will address outcomes of particular business use cases — how they each defined the business problem for AI to solve, partnership opportunities and risks, and how to manage integration of AI and ML into existing workflow.
