AI for Pharmacy: Distraction, Disruption, or Dawn of a New Practice Paradigm?

Thursday, March 12, 2020, 2:00-3:00 pm ET

Technologies exist that are capable of analyzing vast amounts of data and using it to perform various functions from automating a task to predicting an outcome. Artificial or Augmented Intelligence (AI) is a way to use this information to enhance human decision making. There are a myriad of applications of this in healthcare but a lot of misconceptions as well. The explosive growth in digital health and the challenges with cost-effective delivery of healthcare today suggests that AI-based technologies may lead to a paradigm shift. Pharmacy leaders must understand this field in order to decide if, how, and when to embrace it. This webinar will explore some of the opportunities these new technologies provide, ethical and legal concerns that exist, and implications for managing a pharmacy practice.
