As a promised follow-up from our last blog post, 10 (Plus One) Healthcare Trends on the Lab’s Radar for 2020, one more topic deserves attention on our laboratory hot topic list: Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI has been a buzzworthy term for a while now, as we keep hearing it is the next big thing. So much hype has led us to be speculative about its tangible contributions.

To kick off 2020, we have a list of trends that will likely continue to be on the laboratory’s radar in the upcoming year.
