Here are the challenges that artificial intelligence tools can solve in the healthcare system and can provide annual saving.

FREMONT, CA: Artificial intelligence-powered solutions are reverberating across the healthcare sector; it is gaining popularity because of the ability to mimic human activities. Several private and public areas are investing a lot in the healthcare industry. According to a report, the investment will boom up 6.6 Million USD in the next two years, and AI applications will create an annual saving of 150 billion USD by 2026.

What are the challenges in healthcare delivery that can benefit from AI-powered support?

Administrative workflow: Medical providers and, medical staff have to spend a lot of time doing paperwork; it burns their valuable time. AI-assisted software can support such tasks and can streamline the process by doing it accurately in less time. Some Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation provides real-time clinical documentation guidance and ensures consistent recommendations. With the help of these tools, doctors can access the organized patient’s history whenever required. Another solution voice-to-text transcription will save a lot of physicians’ time to help order tests, prescribe medications or make notes.

Store data: By 2020, there will be growth in the medical data; doubling every seventy-three days. It is not simple for a human to keep an error-free record of the data accurately. AI technology can channelize the data and can store it safely for future reference. AI-enabled tools will reduce the storing work of humans and will help them to utilize that time for some other work.

Robot-assisted surgery: In robot-assisted operations, pre-op medical records integrate with real-time operating metrics to improve the outcomes. It is minimally invasive and reduces the patient’s stay at the hospital.

Health monitoring: Wearable technology can monitor health more precisely. These solutions gather data and analyze it to prepare a result of a person’s health. All these data can be shared with the doctor in case of health issues.

Virtual nurses: AI virtual nurses will reduce unnecessary hospital visits. It will provide 24/7 access to answers and support, round-the-clock monitoring, and the ability to get quick answers to questions about medications. 

AI enables Oncology: Technological advancements have enabled detecting tumors at an early stage. With the help of deep learning machines, identify cancerous tissues with an accuracy equivalent to a trained doctor. Early detection will reduce deaths related to cancer.

AI in Pathology: AI-enabled tools will provide a consistent and more accurate diagnosis using algorithmic intelligence. The artificial intelligence-powered solution will assist the pathologist in getting better outcomes.

How is AI going to enrich the healthcare landscape?

Clinicians should use AI as a valuable technology tool, not as a technology to compete. AI has the potential to smoothen the workflow efficiently. It will benefit both the providers and the patients by expanding precision medicine, transforming care delivery and improving the patient experience.

As per predictions, AI doctors cannot replace the physicians but can assist them in formulating better clinical decisions. It also can enhance the cost and quality of service assistance in better clinical decision-making. AI will reduce death caused by the misdiagnosing of illness and medical error.
