How AI is going to Change the medical industry?

The contributions that artificial intelligence can bring to the medical industry will change how the medical field works in innovative ways, allowing people around the world to experience safer, more efficient care & making it easier to prevent and cure diseases.

 

Analysis of health records, medical literature, historical trends was very time consuming but these kinds of tasks are perfectly suited to AI tools. These can review health records & medical data with better speed and accuracy than humans.

 

IBM recently utilized its AI assistant, Watson, in a test to analyze 1,000 cancer detection. In 99% of the cases reviewed, the treatments advised by Watson matched those suggested by the patients oncologists. AI tools can change the way diseases are detected & treated, allowing patients to get the care they need in a fast and more efficient manner.

Another AI-Assistant tool being used in health care was created by DeepMind, analyzed over 1 million anonymous eye scans to train itself to be able to identify the
early signs of eye disease.

 

The availability of AI-powered tools has boosted home testing & personalized health care. Using their smartphones, people can now perform certain diagnostic tests, cutting down on health care costs.

 

There are also many different wearable sensors & devices that send data to smartphones to help people observe various aspects of their health, including blood pressure, oxygenation, heart rate, sleep patterns & other indicators.


 

Here is the list of top AI applications that are available or will soon be available:
 

• Robot-Assisted Surgery ($40 billion industry)
• Virtual Nursing Assistants ($20 billion industry)
• Administrative Work flow Assistance ($18 billion industry)

 

Over the next few years, we will notice exceptional growth in the medical field due to the advances made possible by AI powered technologies. AI tools will allow people around the world to experience safer, more efficient care & making it easier to prevent and cure diseases.
