As the acute and post-acute provider markets begin to work closer together in coordinating care across varied care settings, there has been an associated demand for robust, clinical intelligence and predictive analytics. This month’s LTPAC Roundtable meeting examines the role that predictive, artificial intelligence (AI) driven solutions play in driving care coordination efforts as well as the challenges of leveraging predictive analytics in a market lagging in health IT adoption.
