The president of the Medical University of South Carolina on Monday called today’s health care system “fractured,” “broken,” “wasteful” and “duplicative.” Then he announced a new partnership he hopes will upend all of that.
MUSC is embarking on a 10-year partnership with Siemens, the industrial manufacturing giant. MUSC and Siemens executives announced the agreement to MUSC staff and local leaders in a packed auditorium Monday morning.
They told the audience they want to use Siemens’ artificial intelligence capabilities across the system. One application will be in predicting the best ways to treat each person using information about how countless other patients fared.
