About this session:

Will you be ready to answer questions about the growing role of AI in healthcare? Are families in your community wrestling with a lack of real choices in long-term care? In partnership with KFF and KFF Health News, a source of independent policy research and reporting, our sessions will help you explore, frame and clarify what these two forces mean in your area.

AI will touch diagnosis, safety, billing and treatment. But in our fractured system of health care delivery, where are the guardrails? Our panelists will point to where the key vulnerabilities and potential benefits lie.

Long-term care is a workforce issue, a compassion issue and a money issue. The aging population trends will not stop, so solutions for 2030 and beyond need to roll out this decade. We’ll look at the trends, the data and the potential solutions.
