According to a recent Accenture analysis, artificial intelligence technologies have the potential to save the US healthcare economy approximately $150 billion annually by 2026. Growth opportunities are hard to come by without significant investment, but artificial intelligence (AI) is a self-running engine for growth in healthcare.

AI in health represents a collection of multiple technologies enabling machines to sense, comprehend, act and learn so they can perform administrative and clinical healthcare functions.
