Aidoc's Nurses Weigh In on AI

What would patient care be without the vital role nurses play? What about with respect to AI in clinical care? Nurses and clinical coordinators of Aidoc shared their thoughts on the relationship between nursing and AI in hospital care.  

Nurses play a pivotal role in AI development and in driving AI adoption into clinical workflows. These AI-augmented clinical workflows aid in patient triage and prioritization, decrease treatment times, coordinate medical decision-making and ultimately improve patient outcomes. By incorporating AI into their workflows, nurses can enhance their commitment to expanding patient access to high-quality care.

Nurses are the cornerstone of the healthcare system. In addition to providing care, they also educate and emotionally support patients and act as advocates for better care delivery. AI has the potential to help nurses become more efficient, especially in the realms of clinical decision support, patient monitoring, simulation training and documentation, a list which will continue to evolve.

Adoption and utilization of clinical AI in nursing is essential to successfully meeting the challenges faced in healthcare today. Nurses spearhead the front lines of patient care and require a robust strategy of sophisticated tools that improve patient safety, optimize prioritization and time management and enhance team communication and collaboration. Clinical AI tools provide innovative solutions for mitigating these challenges as well as improving the overall care of patients.

AI has the potential to significantly impact the field of nursing in multiple ways, such as enhanced triage, improved patient monitoring, predictive analytics, workflow optimization, virtual assistance and telehealth, along with education and training. The successful integration of AI in healthcare, and in nursing specifically, can only be done through a collaborative approach that uses the strengths of technology. Along with the human touch and care that has been a part of the nursing field since the beginning.

My most recent role as an RN Stroke Coordinator led me to a passion in AI, because I saw the impact it had on a patient population and outcomes. As nurses, our goal is to care for our patients in the most efficient manner possible and ensure they are addressed in a timely manner. Clinical AI provides the added layer of clinical support needed for expedited decision-making, quickly flagging potential disease pathologies and pulling together interdisciplinary teams for immediate care delivery.
