AI knows as artificial intelligence has increasingly been used in healthcare to solve a variety of problems for patients, hospitals and the overall healthcare industry. Let’s take a close look at how AI is solving problems.
- Diagnostic Assistant
Computers are able to scan through millions of documents in seconds. However, when combined with the analytical and reasoning capabilities artificial intelligence(AI) assistants are able to use this power and speed to access the medical information instantly from anywhere around the globe. This aids doctors in timely research and diagnosis of diseases.
This AI technology helps to interpret lab results. This takes one task away from the doctors and explains the lab results to the patients in a simplified way. It interpret blood tests, genetic tests, and many other tests as well.
- Designing Treatment Plans
AI helps doctors and physicians around the globe in designing the treatment plans for the patients. The doctors just need to upload clinical notes and patients reports and then by combining attributes from the patient’s file with external research, clinical expertise and data, the program identifies potential treatment plans for a patient.
- Visual Diagnosis
Physical examinations are a large part of medical diagnostic practices and sometimes take up a lot of time the in diagnosis of a disease but with help of AI, certain skin conditions can be easily detected without the need for further tests. Conditions such as measles, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer are amongst some which can be detected easily. AI revolutionises the modern healthcare by accelerating the time to diagnose hard to diagnose conditions.
- Bionic Hands
Prosthetic limbs have not changed much, but the bionic hand developed by researchers has the potential to change that. The hand is fitted with a camera which instantaneously takes a picture of the object, assesses its shape and size and triggers a series of movements in the hand.
These are some of the ways in which AI is transforming healthcare.
