This infographic outlines five key messages for policy makers and the NHS on how we can harness the potential of automation and AI in health care.  

These messages are taken from our report Switched on: How do we get the best out of automation and AI in health care? which draws on learning from the Health Foundation’s programmes and research, as well as online YouGov surveys of over 4,000 UK adults and over 1,000 NHS staff.
