Yes, i agreed especially on "75 percent of healthcare enterprises are planning to execute an AI strategy" this is because it helps to save time and the boost eficiency of health care services provided! However, it might not e an easy task as it is not as economically feasible for lots of developing countries.
In general yes, but would expect the introduction of chat-bots, as especially insurance companies try to cut costs and already today try to "motivate" patients to first look up information about symptoms and basic treatments on their portals, before they visit a physical doctor.
In a high level - Yes. Very well mentioned. For example - Blockchain. Like any other industry, we have a solution called Blockchain but no feasible solution ( Of a real life use case) has come up.
I also agree with the thoughts on AI. But, I am more optimistic in this space since pattern recognition and big data analytics solutions are coming very good lately. This will defiantly help Healthcare.

Tech companies could change healthcare with their knowledge about disruption and could lead the way to medical innovation.
Why isn’t that happening already?
Any constructive factual thoughts?
