Integrate AI into the Clinical Workflow — AI needs to be integrated into the clinical workflow in a way that augments, without replacing, clinicians. By doing so we’ll be able to help physicians feel comfortable with the technology because it’s less of a threat, and will alleviate some of the concerns associated with AI, instead showing how it acts as an immediate second opinion to the doctor.

As a part of my interview series with leaders in healthcare, I had the pleasure to interview Jason Bellet. Jason is the Co-Founder & Chief Commercial Officer of Eko, a Berkeley-based digital health company applying machine learning in the fight against heart disease. Eko is a platform of cardiac screening devices, care coordination software, and interpretive algorithms that has helped clinicians across 2,000 health systems screen for, and monitor, heart disease in millions of patients around the world. Jason has been named to the Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 list of rising leaders in healthcare and was invited by the Obama Administration to speak at the White House Dialogue on Men’s Health on pressing issues in cardiovascular care. He holds a bachelors in Business Administration from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.
