Will AI Deliver on Its Promise in Health Care?
A study on generative AI implementation in health care delivery, which describes the process problem in healthcare - the productivity paradox. The comparison to rapid EHR adoption is a bad one - EHRs are mandated payment systems, not a productivity tool. The basis for success of AI implementation across healthcare areas is going to be whether it makes people (practitioners, patients) able to function as humans better, or worse. A good framework article and study.

The biggest opponent so far seems to be foreign medical schools.
