Insights on AI and Care Pathway Optimization Adoption

Market Data
May 16, 2023

AI and Care Pathway Optimization are transforming healthcare. 17% of organizations use AI and 15% use Care Pathway Optimization, indicating a growing interest in improving patient care and streamlining processes.


Artificial intelligence (AI) and care pathway optimization (CPO) are two technological advancements that have had a significant impact on the healthcare industry.

We've conducted an analysis on the number of healthcare organizations using or planning to use these technologies in order to understand these trends. The chart below illustrates our findings, which show a fascinating landscape of interest and investment in these two areas.

The percentage of healthcare organizations using AI and Care Pathway Optimization now or in the future is shown in the graph.

The use of AI in healthcare organizations increased from 17% in 2021 to 25% in 2022.

Additionally, during that time, the percentage of organizations planning to use AI rose from 42% to 53%. When it comes to Care Pathway Optimization, healthcare organizations adopted it at a rate of 15% in 2022 compared to 10% in 2021.

Over the same time period, there was an increase from 25% to 30% in the number of organizations planning to use CPO. These findings show how actively technology is being used in the healthcare industry to improve patient care and streamline procedures.

Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and care pathway optimization (CPO) have the potential to revolutionize the healthcare sector by personalizing treatment plans, predicting patient outcomes, and automating administrative tasks. As interest in these fields increases, we anticipate seeing more advancements and original ideas in the future. 

As we follow these trends, we look forward to providing more details and analyzing how these technologies will affect healthcare in the future.

More Trend Exploration

We turn to a recent report by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) for CPO and the McKinsey Global Institute for AI as we delve deeper into the adoption of AI and Care Pathway Optimization (CPO) in healthcare. The information from these reports provides insight into how these technologies are being used and will be used in American healthcare organizations. These trends are clearly shown in the interactive chart below:

Unpacking the Findings: The Rising Influence of AI and CPO in Healthcare

The chart illustrates that 15% of healthcare organizations are currently using Care Pathway Optimization, with another 30% planning to implement it in the next two years. This trend suggests a growing recognition of the significant improvements in patient outcomes and cost savings that CPO can provide.

Similarly, AI adoption in healthcare is on the rise, with 17% of organizations currently harnessing its capabilities and an additional 42% planning to do so. This aligns with the McKinsey Global Institute's report, which suggests that AI has the potential to save the global healthcare system $100 trillion by 2030.

The increasing adoption of these technologies underscores the healthcare industry's commitment to leveraging innovative solutions to enhance patient care and operational efficiency.
