The Anadach Group and Corvus Health, in collaboration with The Yuan, are pleased to invite you join our  interactive upcoming webinar, 'Implications of Artificial Intelligence on Human Resources for Health ' which is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, December 12th, 2023, at 8.00 am US Eastern Time.


Healthcare demand is driven by a combination of forces: an aging population, increased GDP/population, changing patient expectations, a shift in lifestyle choices, and the never-ending cycle of innovation being but a few. On the other hand, healthcare spending simply cannot keep up, so the demand for efficiency and reduced costs is present in all health systems.


Without major transformational change, healthcare systems will struggle to remain equitable, efficient, and with increased levels of access especially in developing economies. Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize healthcare. A computer program can perform selected tasks or reasoning processes that we usually associate with intelligence in a human being and can do them all day without fatigue or error. Machine learning has the potential to provide data-driven clinical decision support (CDS) to physicians and other health workers—paving the way for improved service delivery and increased revenue potential. Deep learning, a subset of AI designed to identify patterns, uses algorithms and data to give automated insights to healthcare providers. Put simply, AI is reinventing — and reinvigorating — modern healthcare through software that can predict, comprehend, learn, and act.


Given the transformational potential, it is important to understand the significance or potential impact of Artificial Intelligence on health services and outcomes from a global perspective including developing and emerging economies.


For this webinar, we would like to stimulate an  interactive discussion based on current use cases of Artificial Intelligence on clinical outcomes and the health workforce. If you do have any questions you have for the speakers before the event, please send them to

We look forward to having you join us.
