Steven Loeb of VatorNews interviewed David Coppins, our co-founder and CEO, about the nursing shortage and how IntelyCare is working to mitigate it, while also touching on how artificial intelligence is changing healthcare at large.

Nurses are the unsung heroes of the healthcare space, doing a lot of the work but not getting anywhere near as much credit as they probably should. We might start appreciating them soon, though, as there is going to be a shortage of 1.2 million nurses in just a few years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Combine that with the aging boomers who will need increasingly nursing care, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.

 

As with most problems in the healthcare system, the solution is better technology, more specifically big data and artificial intelligence. That’s the solution being brought to market by IntelyCare, an intelligent workforce management solution for post-acute healthcare facilities.
