It’s very unlikely that AI will replace physicians (that’s good news!), points out an interesting article, “Generative AI in Healthcare: Valuation Considerations,” by Todd Zigrang and Jessica Bailey-Wheaton, who are both with Health Capital Consultants. The technology is a definite disruptor and is expected to increase the efficacy of the healthcare system by streamlining clerical work, increasing access to meaningful data, freeing up physicians to spend more time on patient care, and more. But these new value drivers come with risks, such as data bias and patient information being more susceptible to hacking, the authors point out.
