In a recent piece by Silicon.co.uk, IPsoft’s Director of Cognitive Healthcare Services Dr. Vincent Grasso shares his predictions on how AI, machine learning, IoT and wearable devices will impact the delivery of healthcare, and the measures needed to ensure security and privacy for patients using wearable devices.

In a recent piece by Silicon.co.uk, Dr. Vincent Grasso, IPsoft’s Director of Cognitive Healthcare Services and a practicing physician for more than 30 years, discusses the need to ensure the privacy and security of the increasing number of patients using wearable devices, as their private health information is captured and transmitted through multiple vendors.

Dr. Grasso predicts that the number of businesses developing wearable devices for healthcare will continue to grow during the next five years, with Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and smartphone apps having a profound impact on the delivery of healthcare.

“As hospital systems migrate from on-premises information system hosting to the cloud, the ability to integrate an ever-widening list of IoT devices, peripherals, expert systems, and other related [technologies] will increase rapidly,” he says. “Maintaining security and privacy around all of this churn will be difficult to manage. Data breaches will be ever more complex. The trade-off is better quality healthcare delivery and management within a decentralized network.”

The Intelligent Contact Center

Companies have spent decades implementing Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems in their call and customer care centers, but they've proven unable to keep up with customers' expectations.

In this white paper, we examine the benefits of an Intelligent Contact Center, where companies utilize Conversational AI-powered virtual agents to provide first-line resolution and support for customers, and augment human employees through AI and automation.

Download our paper to learn the benefits of this approach and why current IVR systems simply will not cut it in today’s hyper-paced digital landscape.
