Tackling Overwork in Healthcare: The Power of AI

This interview was presented by Leidos as part of the Artificial Intelligence at Veterans Affairs special podcast series


Ning Yu, Senior Research Scientist for Leidos


Join Francis Rose for an insightful conversation with Ning Yu, Chief Natural Language Processing Research Scientist at Leidos, as she dives deep into the transformative power of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. With burnout being a significant concern, affecting over 85% of clinicians, AI promises relief by eliminating redundant administrative tasks and emphasizing tasks that need profound medical knowledge.

But the advantages don't stop there. With AI, there's potential to not only cut time but also to enhance the accuracy in manual workflows. Mistakes happen, especially when overwhelmed with data. Ning Yu sheds light on how AI can distill vital information for healthcare providers, allowing them to focus on what truly matters, thus improving overall accuracy.

However, merging technology with healthcare isn't just about algorithms and models. It's about collaboration, understanding, and trust. Ning Yu emphasizes the need to involve all stakeholders from the start, ensuring that everyone is on the same page.

Furthermore, with the rise of generative AI, new avenues and challenges are emerging. Listen in as we discuss the development process, strategies, and the path towards ensuring bias-free AI solutions in healthcare.
