 Session Abstract – PMWC 2020 Silicon Valley


ML-based clinical decision support technology is becoming more popular among healthcare provider organizations due to its ability to analyze large volumes of information, ensure that key data don’t escape the attention of the care team, and reduce alert fatigue. Unfortunately, most health systems are unprepared for how to select and deploy these new solutions. This session will discuss steps that hospitals and health systems should take to avoid mistakes and pitfalls.
