Artificial Intelligence in aged care – assisting providers to make decisions on data and science rather than assumptions.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming a buzz word in many fields, including aged care. But how can new technologies such as these be used in a very human facing industry? Are they reliable, can the data be trusted, and will they take the place of human care givers? Hear from an innovative aged care provider who picked up an AI resident monitoring system in its infancy, installed it in its homes, worked with the developers to refine and improve the system, and how it is now an integral part of its overall care systems and processes. See how the use of AI has improved resident well-being, protected privacy and dignity, allowed for better staff deployment, and enabled the use of scientific data to guide early intervention, and lessen hospital admissions. Also hear from the system architect about the success of this AI device in COVID wards of hospitals overseas and where systems such as this are heading in the future.
