The topic of artificial intelligence is a hot topic in the U.S. healthcare system and despite some uncertainties, continues to be increasingly integrated into healthcare delivery. Artificial intelligence can be used for different purposes including but not limited to data storage, decision making and image analysis. Critics of artificial intelligence in healthcare are skeptical of its ability to provide security of medical information and afraid that it will eventually replace the need for human healthcare workers. Although the critics skepticisms seem rational, further research of artificial intelligence in healthcare shows that those fears are not based on fact. Artificial intelligence in healthcare has been proven to reduce healthcare expenditures, increase access and improve quality of care and overall health outcomes. It is important for future healthcare providers to increase familiarity with artificial intelligence in order to effectively integrate it into practice to improve the health and well-being of future clients.
