AMS Healthcare is pleased to announce the inaugural cadre of our Fellows in Compassion and Artificial Intelligence. These 11 exceptional individuals, from across multiple disciplines, have been selected as innovators and leaders to steward the changes ahead in healthcare. They will explore the rapid integration of technology, ensuring new models of care remain grounded in healthcare’s compassionate purpose. Their collective research will innovate medicine and clinical care, healthcare education, home care and beyond. “AMS wants to ensure that healthcare remains compassionate in an era of emerging and disruptive technologies,” says AMS CEO Gail Paech. “The work of these trailblazers will be critical in that pursuit.”
