The three Musketeers of the Healthcare Industry: AI, Machine Learning, and Wearables

Healthcare Tech Outlook | Tuesday, February 05, 2019

Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and wearables have remarkably transformed the healthcare industry. These technologies provide unique solutions to doctors, hospital management and patients to improve healthcare.

Artificial Intelligence in healthcare: Artificial intelligence accomplishes the functions faster without making errors. AI-driven tools provide solutions, which eliminate mundane tasks, mitigate risks, and increase the efficiency of the healthcare functions.

• Early detection and diagnosis: In the case of cancer treatments the unpredictable nature of tumors is the biggest threat to cure it. If a doctor can foresee how a tumor evolves they can be one step ahead and the probability of surviving of the patient rises. AI-tools can pick out the pattern from DNA mutation of the cancer patients and predict the genetic changes.

 Precision medicine: Precision medicine for chronic diseases speeds up the treatment by allowing doctors to see the effects of any medication before starting to apply them in the proper treatment.

Machine learning in healthcare: Machine Learning converts the analysis into clinical insights which help physicians in planning and providing patient care. It can make better decisions about patient diagnoses and treatment options by analyzing possible outcomes. 

• Diagnostics radiology: The amounts of captured medical images are growing and it becomes hectic to check the reports up for the physicians in time and the rush make them do the mistakes sometimes. Machine learning can wipe out these imperfections by analyzing medical images faster and detecting anomalies in a better way.

• Predicting outcomes: ML tools can predict outcomes of critical and chronic diseases by using advanced analytics algorithm. Doctors can treat patients according to the predictions which increase the possibility of life expectancy of patients and also cut the cost of the treatment.

Wearables: Wearables simplify understanding health and taking care accordingly for individuals as they use mass data collection. The devices enable doctors to preload CT and X-ray images. 

 AI, ML and wearables are able to give pre-peeks of the future that generally take months and years for the physicians and doctors to see through the diseases and patients.
