AI is here…so why isn’t it in every clinic?

Eric Topol talks with a16z Bio + Health general partners Vijay Pande and Vineeta Agarwala and editorial lead Olivia Webb about what’s taking so long, where AI can help patients and providers the most, what needs to happen to speed up adoption, and whether data or policy is more likely to be an obstacle.

Eric has written extensively about AI in healthcare, including in his most recent book Deep Medicine: How Artificial Intelligence Can Make Healthcare Human Again. He also writes a Substack focused on Covid research, called Ground Truths, linked below.  Finally, as a marker of how AI and AI adoption has (and hasn’t) changed over the last few years, check out Eric’s 2019 interview with Vijay on the a16z Podcast, also linked below.
