Two Minute Drill: AI & Healthcare: A Conversation with Mark Abla
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today I’m with my very good friend, the CEO of the Illinois Chiropractic Society, and on the leadership team for the Chiropractic Future Strategic Plan. This week’s TMD is all about AI and emerging technologies in health care.
A Conversation with Mark Abla
Dr. Jay: In today’s Two Minute Drill, I have the pleasure of speaking with my good friend, Mr. Mark Abla. How has your week been, Mark?
Mr. Mark Abla: Hey, it’s great to be here. It’s been a fantastic week.
Dr. Jay: We’re currently at the HIMSS Conference, which has attracted about 20,000 people. Mark, what has been the most impactful aspect of the conference for you?
Mr. Mark Abla: It’s been amazing to see some of the connectivity for generative AI and what it’s going to do for healthcare, what it is doing for healthcare, as well as interoperability, the keys to coordinated care.
Dr. Jay: What’s amazing is that this whole AI thing is literally just getting started. Our moderator who was fantastic, for this session this morning, was talking about the fact that things that are happening today weren’t even possible, two, or three years ago. I think what’s going to happen is we’re going to see even more massive change. How do you think that affects patients, Mark? How, how is this going to play a role in improving care?
Mr. Mark Abla: As long as we continue to keep patients at the center and focus on outcomes, it’s going to create some economies of scale, some true things that can help us inside the practice, improve outcomes, and just do better.
Dr. Jay: And the advice that I give to healthcare providers out there, really anybody who’s interested in technology is to Learn about it and just go and play with this stuff and just see what happens. You know, use your creativity, then apply, and the things that really create impact for you when you apply them, ultimately have a great impact on your business, your customers, and your patients. Any final words from you, Mr. Abla?
Mr. Mark Abla: I completely agree with Jay – just jump into technology. It is critical for your practice, efficiencies, and future profitability.
Dr. Jay: Thank you, Mark, for sharing your insights. That’s all for today’s Two Minute Drill, and we’ll talk to you all next week!
