Telemedicine logistics: network optimization using artificial intelligence

A moderate telehealth network size might be 100 doctors and 1000 facilities. In that context, artificial intelligence allows to automate complex workflows. Many companies dealing in complicated webs of variables like this are turning to AI to help streamline and optimize their operations.

When you start to look at telemedicine through the lens of logistics, some of the solutions that are currently solving logistical problems in other industries – say in the shipping sector – are appealing for this space as well. Specifically, technology such as artificial intelligence can make a huge difference – taking in massive amounts of data, understanding complex constraints, and then intelligently routing little packets of physician time around the network in a way that makes the best possible logistical sense.
