About this Episode

In last week's episode, we discussed why technology is a non-negotiable tool for alleviating the workforce crisis. While we talked about many technologies, we didn't talk much about one of the most transformational forces in the healthcare industry today: Artificial Intelligence. There is so much buzz, and so much fear about the topic, that we wanted to dedicate an episode to it.

In this episode host Rachel (Rae) Woods invites back fan-favorite guest Tom Lawry, a top thought leader on artificial intelligence, bestselling author, and the former head of AI for Microsoft. Last year, Tom was part of an award-winning Radio Advisory episode on bias and AI. In this episode, Rae and Tom will discuss frustrations, fears, and the wealth of opportunities that generative AI brings the healthcare industry. They also discuss myths around AI, and why leaders should stop worrying about existential threats and start imagining the existential opportunity this technology provides.
