As I’ve noted previously, artificial intelligence and Machine Learning applications are playing an increasingly important role in healthcare. The two technologies are central to some intriguing new data analytics approaches, many of which are designed to predict which patients will suffer from a particular ailment (or progress in that illness), allowing doctors to intervene.

For example, at New York-based Mount Sinai Hospital, executives are kicking off a predictive analytics project designed to predict which patients might develop congestive heart failure, as well as to care for those who’ve are done so more effectively. The hospital is working with AI vendor CloudMedx to make the predictions, which will generate predictions by mining the organization’s EMR for clinical clues, as well as analyzing data from implantable medical devices, health tracking bands and smartwatches to predict the patient’s future status.

However, I recently read an article questioning whether all health IT infrastructures are capable of handling the influx of data that are part and parcel with using AI and machine learning — and it gave me pause.
