Artificial Intelligence and Robotics - at the betterment of taking care of patients

By Healthcare Tech Outlook | Friday, November 30, 2018

As technologies today are integral part of our everyday life medical industry cannot constraint itself from the rising waves of the artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. AI and robotics are advancing the future of the medical industry because of their power of handling big data. AI and robotics provide healthcare sector, the facilities, with opportunities to improve patient results. These make physicians work faster, hospitals and laboratories come up with a more accurate diagnosis.

Following are some of the ways of how AI and robotics are transforming the way to treat diseases and improve patient care.

Detection at early stage: The unpredictable nature of tumors is the biggest threat to cure cancer. If doctors foresee how the tumor evolves they can be one step ahead and the probability of surviving of the patient rises. AI and robotics help to pick out the pattern from DNA mutation of the cancer patients and predicts the genetic changes. There are some wearable medical devices combined with AI which oversee heart disease at early stage and enable doctors and caregivers to take necessary precautions.

Diagnosis: AI and robotics are effective in the diagnosis of various medical conditions accurately. They are helping healthcare organizations to apply related technologies to unlock health data and power diagnosis. An AI agent can diagnose disease and provide treatment decisions with the help of deep learning in AI and robotics as a mainstream physician.

Decision-making: AI and robotics are capable to identify and recognize patterns of diseases. They support to take complicated clinical decisions and actions which save patient’s time, money and life.  

Treatment: AI helps physicians to have a comprehensive approach to disease management, to coordinate care plans, and enable patients to comply better with long-term treatments. Robots are assisting surgeons in complex surgeries. Robots also help hospitals and clinics in doing repetitive tasks.

Research: The way of drugs from the research lab to patients is long and also costly. Drug research and discovery are the new addition in AI applications. According to a research of the California Biomedical Research Association, a drug takes an average of 12 years to travel from lab to patients. With introducing AI solutions drug discovery and repurposing processes are now able to cut both time and costs.

AI and robotics are giving pre-peeks of the future which generally take months and years for the physicians and doctors to see through the diseases and patients. Robotics and AI’s intervention in medicine is the big thing which is changing the view of the way of treatment and cure.
