Anthony Chang, M.D., chief intelligence and innovation officer, Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), and medical director of the Sharon Disney Lund Medical Intelligence and Innovation Institute. He is expert in artificial intelligence (AI). He spoke in several sessions at Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2019 meeting on the integration of AI in healthcare.
He said AI will play a big roll in imaging assessments of adult congenital heart disease to help relieve the burden on the small number of congenital cardiologists.
Chang also explained there is a tsunami of data about to wash over healthcare as wearable devices begin to be integrated into patient care. AI will play a key role in sorting through all this data by monitoring the information to identify trends or disease markers and alert clinicians and the patient.
He was a keynote speaker at HIMSS19 with his session "Synergies Between Man and Machine — Future AI apps can be directed to help mitigate physician burnout by decreasing the EHR burden, improving medical education, and automating quality improvement."
Chang is head of the artificial intelligence organization AIMed, which hosts educational sessions and an annual meeting on AI applications in medicine.
