Machine learning crunches huge volumes of data to identify patterns that the human brain cannot detect. Health systems are using machine learning to predict illness in individuals and population health risk for a group. Practice managers are using it to optimize clinical workflow, and providers are using it to make faster and more accurate diagnoses, including differentiating between healthy and diseased tissue.

A subset of artificial intelligence, machine learning is a tool that can augment human ingenuity and improve performance, with benefits for both health systems and patients.

Machine Learning was a healthcare industry trend in our 2022 March Healthcare Classic. Explore this year’s interactive bracket to see the most impactful healthcare trends face off.
