• Role of AI in Augmenting Healthcare Workflow
Across all regions in the Middle East, AI-based cognitive technologies are becoming the most useful tools for drug discovery and research, clinical decision support, and medical imaging and diagnostics capabilities. Key use cases of AI here include the elimination of unnecessary procedures and costs, in-patient care and effective hospital management, patient data analytics, and claims processing, represent more than 80 percent of the Middle East workflow market contribution.
• Diagnostics Through Multiple Technology Tools
Within Middle East healthcare, the sectors which have received much attention from innovators are remote diagnostics and patient consultation. The UAE start-ups have been the major innovators, using AI and Big Data, Internet of medical things (IoMT), blockchain, robotics and augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), with healthcare solutions like 3D diagnostics, patient records, and other healthcare management platforms. This ultimately improves the quality of care that a patient can receive, leading to better health outcomes and enhanced life expectancy.
• Wearables to Improve Patient Experience
The Middle East’s wearables market is growing significantly over the years, working with AI to track diseases and other vital signs. Biosensors embedded within these wearables continuously monitor a patient’s progress, while creating a database through Big Data that can be analyzed in several ways, resulting in greater population health insights and improved patient management. With all these, Middle East healthcare is realizing the massive benefits by curbing the growth of the disease through wearable devices.
