Microsoft and American Hospital Association launch new AI in healthcare training

Much like Microsoft’s mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, the mission of the American Hospital Association (AHA) is succinct and straightforward: to advance the health of individuals and communities. Microsoft’s new partnership with AHA builds off our respective missions to launch an educational course on the future of artificial intelligence in healthcare operations and the delivery of clinical care. Called “Microsoft AI in Health Care: Leading Through Change”, this free, 1-hour virtual training for AHA members and Microsoft clinical customers is taught by experts to:

  • Raise awareness and increase understanding of the scope of AI in healthcare, including:
    • The risks and opportunities when applying AI in clinical settings.
    • AI’s role in the future of care delivery.
  • Highlight clinical and administrative AI use cases.
  • Provide another avenue for physicians, nurses and hospital administrators to earn continuing education credits.

AI reshaping health

Healthcare is evolving and moving faster than we could imagine — and AI is playing a central role in unlocking new insights from data, advancing discoveries, and improving patient and operational outcomes. We’re seeing AI reshape health, especially in response to COVID-19. For example:

It’s clear that AI offers unlimited space for innovation as well as enabling health professionals to work more efficiently and effectively in the face of unprecedented change.

Smarter, safer, and better care

We’re seeing the U. S. health industry step into a new era where organizations that enable their workforce with AI will gain a competitive advantage. A first and critical step to reimagine healthcare and achieve more with AI is educating nurses and physicians on how this technology is transforming care across the continuum — today and in the future. That’s why we are proud to invest in and work with AHA to deliver this timely and relevant educational experience.
