Hospitals are revolutionizing the way of treatment with the help of new technologies.
Fremont, CA: Advances in technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), information technologies, availability of high-speed internet, remote monitoring technology, and the developments in 3D-printing and robotics are changing the way of treatment in the hospitals for patients doctors both. It is predicted that a revolution in diagnosis and care provision will occur, and shortly, most of these tasks and almost all the monitoring and care might be shifted elsewhere. The technological revolution and medical advances that are made by combining huge amounts of data, cloud computing services, and machine learning are giving rise to AI-based solutions to provide expert insight and analysis on a mass scale at a relatively low cost. Major alterations have been made in ways that the healthcare industry works by connected medical devices. Shortly, the “Future Hospital” concept will become a reality with the adaptation of technology-enabled care.
The advances in AI has been made faster than it was anticipated. Presently, AI can perform complex activities like image classification, object detection, speech recognition, translation, gaming, driving, finance, and even law decision-making. These activities need complex computing and decision-making; a well-trained human being could only perform them in the past.
Scientists and researchers have made significant efforts to use AI in diagnosis, treatment, and medical care. It seems that AI will very soon change the landscape of healthcare completely. Medical physics predicts that AI will enhance overall healthcare extensively. Some scientists also believe that AI will impact medical physics research and practice, while others consider these expectations unrealistic because of the technical validation and the practical limitations of AI.
Another technology that has already lead to much change in all other areas of lives is 3D-printing. It seems it also has the potential to change medicine and healthcare truly. This change could become real by making care affordable, accessible, and personalized. If 3D printers become more sophisticated, printing biomaterials become safely regulated, and the general public accepts this new technology, a new era may begin.
