AI has transformed the lives of many whether a patient, a doctor, or other hospital staff completing tasks that were often done by humans with minimal cost, less time, and with great efficiency and least possible error. During these past 10 years, AI has become the world’s highest revenue and asset-generating industry.
AI USE IN HEALTHCARE
AI is helping in a big way in health care. They have surgical robots. They can easily find out links between genetic codes and maximize hospital efficiency. AI has proven that it is a boon to the healthcare industry. Modern AI-based healthcare machines have such a vast knowledge base that they can predict a broad range of diseases on the go and when they cannot they get trained for the next time and accordingly act on that. Misdiagnosing of illness and medical error such as those led to 10% of deaths alone that transpired in 2015. However, AI adoption has helped in achieving higher accuracy and minimal possible error.
HOW AI HAS IMPROVED THE STRUCTURE OF AND FACILITIES PROVIDED BY THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY
There have been many occasions in which we can find proof of how AI has helped us overall in achieving better efficacy while diagnosing the root cause of a certain heath-related problem. For instance, AI-based machines use algorithms and deep learning to diagnose breast cancer at a higher rate and with better precision. In one study, an AI model diagnosed breast cancer at a higher rate than 11 pathologists put together.
One famous AI-based healthcare organization is developing machine learning technology for helping out pathologists in predicting results with better precision. Their ultimate goal is to reduce errors in cancer treatment and develop more tools and discover more ways for the best medical treatment. Many organizations of the likes of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are going to expand their AI technology into healthcare industries. Some AI-based health organizations have been working with drug developers to find out new possibilities.
There is an organization that is working on symptom and cure checkers. This organization uses several well-developed algorithms and a well-created knowledge base to diagnose and treat illnesses embedded at the very root. They use a chatbot that listens to the patient’s problem and analyzes that problem and gives a solution to that particular patient. Some big organizations are using this facility to help diagnose and treat patients quicker. An example of such an organization is Harvard health school.
Artificial_intelligence has helped to develop deep learning medical tools to streamline radiology diagnosis. It analyses complex medical data like radiology images, blood tests, EKGs, genomics, patient medical history to give the best solution possible accordingly. 5th smartest AI company in the world, ranking above Facebook and Microsoft is MIT named Enlitic. Freenome uses AI in screenings, diagnostic tests, and blood work to test for cancer. By deploying AI at general screenings, Freenome aims to detect cancer in its earliest stages and subsequently develop new treatments.
With all of the above said, this should be concluded that AI has, in many ways than not, transformed many of the industries and the healthcare industry is no exception to this, in fact, the benefits being reaped by medical professionals with the inclusion of Artificial intelligence are far more to even sum them up succinctly in this post alone. We should, therefore, consider it a tool to be used wisely at the disposal of humankind.
