Digitization means taking paper charts and putting them into EHRs. Digital transformation means leveraging the digital asset to do something we never could before. Applying AI/ML in healthcare will be one of the primary ways we carry out that digital transformation.
Prashant tells us our goal for digital transformation is to “help the humans of healthcare achieve better outcomes”. That means better experiences and outcomes for patients, providers, administrators, and more.
And if we want to achieve that goal, we’ll need to combine the best of AI and ML with the best of the humans and the best of our organizations to create symbiotic intelligence.

At H2O.ai, democratizing AI isn’t just an idea. It’s a movement. And that means that it requires action. We started out as a group of like minded individuals in the open source community, collectively driven by the idea that there should be freedom around the creation and use of AI.
Today we have evolved into a global company built by people from a variety of different backgrounds and skill sets, all driven to be part of something greater than ourselves. Our partnerships now extend beyond the open-source community to include business customers, academia, and non-profit organizations.
