Government announcement on AI in healthcare - PwC comments

Nov 06, 2018

Responding to the Government's announcement today on Artificial Intelligence in healthcare, Quentin Cole, UK Government and Health Industries leader at PwC, commented:

“We welcome today's announcement as it recognises the huge opportunity in AI to transform healthcare delivery.

"PwC's recent report AI in healthcare showed that over half of young people were willing to use AI in their care. If just a proportion of the UK population start to use more services delivered through technology it could begin to free up both staff and resources.

“With the younger demographic more open to using new technologies in their healthcare, we need to seize the opportunity to prepare for a generation that will be more willing to engage with AI.”
