2020 is already shaping up to be a very exciting time for the medical technology community, particularly with major new advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning ushering in so many breakthroughs.
AI technology has been in development for decades, but it’s never been as affordable, as accessible, or as efficient as it is today. Start up companies and technology giants like in Silicon Valley (and around the world) are leveraging AI in their hardware and software solutions aimed at revolutionizing the way healthcare is implemented globally.
Recent reports suggest that anywhere between 20% and 30% of all money spent on healthcare is wasted due to inefficiencies that exist in the medical community today. Artificial intelligence may not necessarily be able to eliminate all of those inefficiencies, but these technologies are already proving to be radically effective at improving results across the board while keeping costs down at the same time.
AI technology is specifically being used in the diagnostic world, helping patients to move faster through the diagnostic process but also allowing for higher levels of accuracy and reliability as well. The human element always introduces variance and inaccuracy just because of human nature, but AI technology (combined with advanced machine learning and cloud computing solutions) can produce greater than 99% accuracy in diagnostic approaches while working 30 times faster than the average human, too.
Treatment protocols are being improved by AI as well. Modern solutions are able to analyze individual patient data, compare it to Big Data databases to better understand the individual situation, and then can make informed recommendations about how to best move forward with custom treatment protocols that really work.
There’s also a new revolution in the world of healthcare towards patient control over their own health and wellness, not only providing them with instant access to their own individual health data and information but also providing them with recommendations about how to best move forward with habits and lifestyle choices that can improve their wellness, too.
These three areas of how artificial intelligence is being used in the medical community only barely begin to scratch the surface of how this technology is poised to revolutionize healthcare from top to bottom globally moving forward. We are living in very exciting times when it comes to the intersection of tech and medicine, and AI is getting us better results faster than anyone could have anticipated.
