PATH is a new membership-based, mission-driven alliance to ensure the integration of automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI) into the many components that comprise global healthcare. PATH’s forward-thinking directives help to ensure that expertise critical for decision-making and funding makes its way into the many healthcare settings. PATH members range from professionals delivering care to health system executives in industry, public policy, academia, government, and educators – all of whom have a stake in the delivery of effective healthcare around the world in both on-site and remote care environments.
AI and related innovations have enabled industries such as banking, aviation, and entertainment to grow faster, provide higher-quality products, and allow consumers greater choice. With spiraling costs, increased need and decreasing resources, and rapidly advancing new technologies and participants, healthcare lags significantly behind. But innovation alone does not equal adoption and use, especially in healthcare. Innovations must gain the support of a spectrum of decision-makers – healthcare providers, regulators, payers, and consumers.
PATH is action-oriented, uniting stakeholders to identify the most critical technology innovations in automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence. This moves the field beyond research and innovation to enable an effective pathway for their adoption in the worldwide ecosystem of medicine.
