VirtualMED is partnering with HealthTap, a US-based health technology company, to provide Canadians with easy access to high quality, AI-powered virtual care. No more waiting hours at the emergency room or weeks and months for a doctor’s appointment. VirtualMED members will have fast access to primary care, 24/7, from a team of licensed physicians on any internet-enabled device, complete with an AI symptom checker. If a diagnosis cannot be given through teleconsult, an in-person appointment is available within 24 hours.1

VirtualMED will offer packages to businesses directly and through their insurance carriers who wish to provide access to virtual primary healthcare for employees which will reduce costs, save time, and increase satisfaction. Individual and family packages will also be available for all Canadians. Users will have access to VirtualMed’s licensed doctors through an AI-based app which provides personalized, convenient diagnoses and treatment plans. VirtualMED members will also have access to affordable, virtual care when travelling in the US, which can prevent expensive treatment costs. VirtualMED services and app will be available to all Canadians in French and English by the end of 2019.

GlobeNewswire

on

SAN FRANCISCO, July 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Informa Tech media brands, InformationWeek and ITPro Today, today announced findings from their latest research survey the 2020 State of Artificial Intelligence. The team surveyed technology decision makers across North American companies to uncover the ways organizations are approaching and implementing emerging technologies – specifically artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) – in order to grow and get ahead of the competition.Key Findings in the 2020 State of Artificial IntelligenceOrganizations varied a great deal in terms of where they were in their adoption of AI. The largest percentage of organizations (36%) are still in the development stage with their AI programs, and yet nearly one-third (30%) were the most advanced, with multiple applications in general production.The biggest concern organizations had about AI was security, which was cited by nearly half of respondents (48%).Larger companies (1,000 or more employees) said that greater efficiencies within IT operations topped their list of benefits already achieved from existing AI deployments (49%). Smaller companies (fewer than 1,000 employees) said the biggest benefit was new product development (35%), followed closely by IT efficiencies (31%).The majority of those surveyed, (55%), said they were “pioneers” of AI deployment, learning about AI as they engaged with the technology. Very few classified themselves as “bleeding edge early adopters,” nor did they describe their organizations as “resistant laggards.”To download a complimentary copy of The 2020 State of Artificial Intelligence, click here.Media interested in receiving a copy of the report or the State of AI infographic should contact Briana Pontremoli at Briana.Pontremoli@informa.com2020 State of Artificial Intelligence Report Methodology
The survey collected opinions from nearly 300 business professionals at companies engaged with AI-related projects. Nearly 90% of respondents have an IT or technology-related job function, such as application development, security, Internet of Things, networking, cloud, or engineering. Just over half of respondents work in a management capacity, with titles such as C-level executive, director, manager, or vice president. One half are from large companies with 1,000 or more employees, and 20% work at companies with 100 to 999 employees.
