This special issue will explore the vanguard of AI applications within healthcare settings, illuminating both the transformative potential and the practical implications for service delivery and evaluation. Reflecting the Journal of Health Organization and Management's dedication to methodologically diverse and innovative research, this Special Issue seeks to draw together empirical and theoretical work that addresses the multifaceted roles AI can play in health organizations.

The necessity for a Special Issue on AI in health organizations is underscored by a burgeoning body of literature and the rapid evolution of AI technologies. Recent studies have highlighted AI's potential to revolutionize healthcare delivery, from diagnostic accuracy to personalized treatment plans. However, there remains a critical gap in understanding how these technologies can be effectively integrated into health services and their impact on organizational practices and patient outcomes. Furthermore, the global health crises and societal shifts towards digital health solutions underscore the urgency for scholarly discourse on AI's role in healthcare. This Special Issue responds to these needs, aiming to bridge the gap in literature, address the societal implications of AI in healthcare, and contribute to shaping future health policies and practices in light of AI advancements.
