SUMMARY

This report finds that healthcare professionals expect artificial intelligence (AI) to be used as a predictive tool that changes healthcare services from reactive treatments to preventative practice.

Artificial intelligence is being applied in three key healthcare areas: diagnostics, operational and administrative efficiency, and health promotion and preventative health; however, deployment of AI-enabled services is hindered by regulation.

Where can intelligent technologies deliver impact across the healthcare sector? Unlocking value in data/analytics was the top category (75%) addressed by respondents, followed by condition recognition (60%). Organizational processes were addressed by half of the respondents, which reflect the growing application of AI in routine clinical, as well as managerial and back-office tasks, such as document management, paperwork, and scheduling. Healthcare companies expect a reduction in administrative staff overheads and an optimistic perspective on how AI will affect clinicians. Already, 94% of respondents believe diagnostics is an extremely important or very important AI use case. Effective diagnosis equals effective health promotion and preventative care, which was cited as extremely important or very important by 78% of respondents.

Overall, the regulation of AI is a barrier. When asked about regulatory status, only 18% of respondents indicated they had secured approval in the UK/EU or abroad. A further 23% indicated they were in the process of securing approval. To successfully deploy AI technologies across the healthcare sector, there needs to be a collaborative ecosystem that supports fair and transparent principles for a trusted and safe market.

Methodology
The survey was developed with the input of the AHSN Network AI Initiative Core Advisory Group and nationally delivered via the AHSN Network. The survey results are self-reported and were collected and analyzed by a team at Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network, supported by Health Education England Kent Surrey Sussex. Survey respondents included CEOs (42%), senior managers (15%) and those working across the AI ecosystem in England. Respondents represent large businesses with 250 staff or more (32%), as well as micro organizations with less than 10 staff (38%) across multiple sectors.
