The new practice builds on the positive results of Amelia implementations across industries to target the healthcare AI market, which is expected to reach $6.6 billion by 20211.
"We have seen the hype about AI's ability to find cures for major diseases overnight. Now it is time to recover AI's reputation by applying advanced cognitive technology to the daily operations of the sector in order to provide demonstrable benefits to patients and the organizations who treat them," said Chetan Dube, IPsoft President and CEO.
In order to develop and lead this new global practice, IPsoft has appointed David Champeaux as its global Cognitive Director, Healthcare Solutions. David has deep experience in designing and leading technology-enabled transformations within the healthcare sector both in his previous role as a Partner in McKinsey & Company's Healthcare practice and McKinsey Digital, where he served clients in Europe, Australia and the US, and as Managing Director leading Accenture's UK Healthcare Strategy practice.
"Routine cognitive processes can take up to 51% of a nurse's and 17% of a doctor's time - which is frustrating when Health Systems struggle with affordability and workforce shortages and patients complain about access. With Amelia's unique combination of human-like conversational intelligence, advanced analytics and dynamic processes execution, we finally have the opportunity to transform healthcare by freeing up its human capital - addressing challenges in access, quality, and efficiency," said David Champeaux.
In hospitals, Amelia can have significant and immediate impact relieving those who should be caring for patients from routine interactions, by helping manage operational and administrative processes such as booking rooms and beds or coordinating patient transfers.
For chronic conditions, which account for 86%2 of healthcare spend in the US, Amelia can help health institutions establish sustainable delivery at scale of proactive, coordinated patient care plans. For example, she can streamline most administrative and operational arrangements, such as providing information, booking regular appointments and scheduling tests.
For health insurers, Amelia can help improve the customer experience and efficiency of routine member services. Amelia can deliver affordable 24/7 availability to answer eligibility and coverage questions, or initiate and manage claims. In parallel, by employing Amelia, health insurance providers will be able to connect back-end underwriting systems and processes to every customer conversation, delivering instant scale to their operations.
Amelia is the most human and comprehensive AI platform on the market. Uniquely, Amelia connects conversations to data and processes in order to provide a personalized service to every customer, at scale. Across the US, Europe and Asia, global organizations are employing Amelia to improve customer experience and drive enhanced productivity.

-Card controls counter threat of FBI’s warning on unlimited ATM cash out crime - Santa Clara, Calif., Aug. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- US mainstream media is reporting on a FBI warning to banks of an impending cybercrime wave targeting ATMs in which thieves seek to steal millions of dollars by using cloned cards for fraudulent withdrawals.

MONTREAL, Aug. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SEMAFO Inc. (TSX:SMF) (OMX:SMF) regrets to report that a bus transporting employees from the town of Bobo-Dioulasso to the Mana Mine in Burkina Faso was shot at by armed bandits this morning.

The Corporation would like to express its sincere sympathy to families of the victims.

BUDAPEST, Hungary and BOSTON, Aug. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThalesNano Energy LLC today announced, at the 256th ACS conference (booth: 1615), the launch of the first in the series of revolutionary new gas generators, the H-Genie™.
