While public opinion on AI is still evolving, knowledge about the technology also determines patients’ hesitance levels.

Patients who said they have heard little or nothing about AI were more likely to be uncomfortable with their provider using them than those who said they had heard about them, the survey found.

Ultimately 75% of respondents said they are worried their providers are moving too fast, implementing the tools without fully knowing the risks, compared to just 23% who said they are moving too slow.

Dive Brief:

  • Some 38% of respondents said using AI in healthcare settings would lead to better health outcomes while 33% said it would make them worse, and 27% said it wouldn’t make much of a difference, the survey found.
  • Ultimately, men, younger people and those with higher education levels were the most open to their providers using AI.
