Regard Teams Up with Banner Health to Add AI Services to 33 Acute Care Hospitals

Banner Health in Phoenix has partnered with Regard, a clinical decision software company, to implement algorithms and artificial intelligence that will support clinical decision-making, documentation, and communication between clinicians at their 33 acute care hospitals spanning six states. The software will gradually be integrated into the electronic health records of each hospital to streamline navigation, enhance patient safety, and increase the amount of time clinicians can spend at the patient’s bedside.

Physicians at Banner Health expressed a preference for spending more time directly caring for patients and less time on tasks such as record-keeping and data analysis when surveyed. By implementing Regard’s AI technology, Banner Health aims to free up time for clinicians to focus on patient care by reducing administrative and documentation tasks. Dr. Susan C. Lee, M.D., a physician executive at Banner Health, is excited to be at the forefront of this trend and believes that providing physicians with innovative tools can make their jobs easier and more efficient.

The market for AI in clinical decision-making is predicted to double in the next five years. Dr. Lee emphasized the importance of giving clinicians more opportunities to engage with their patients by reducing administrative responsibilities through AI technology implementation. By doing so, Banner Health hopes to improve patient outcomes while also making its healthcare system more efficient and effective.
