Krishnan’s passion is to embrace AI to improve clinical processes using technology. For example, AI could personalize a patient’s care plan. A care plan is essentially a roadmap of what ails someone to the steps along the path to treatment and, hopefully, restoring health and wellness. “Moving to a model where customized plans are based on generative AI and trained AI models from similar patients and similar care settings is where the future is,” Krishnan says.
