The healthcare industry operates under very high pressure, which is quite understandable. Because of this, it makes sense that technology had the ability to make the lives of healthcare providers and administrators easier. Today, we’re going to discuss healthcare artificial intelligence and how it could change the industry for the better.
AI Can Efficiently Analyze Vast Troves of Data
Think of all of the data and medical history that is within the healthcare industry. This data usually comes from a few different sources and while it would be a pain to go through manually, it could potentially provide insight if it was organized and analyzed thoroughly. AI can be easily used for something like this, and could potentially lead to machine-based predictions that the human eye could have missed. This means that AI could be used as a predictive tool, to customize treatments plans, or to help make medical decisions based on hard data.
AI Can Make New Medicines, Cheaper
Obviously, making medicine is not a cheap process. There is a lot of research that goes into making it safe and affective because of all of the different variables involved. Though, we could use a similar technology that is found in self-driving cars and test through simulation. This type of technology can cut this research time by months or years, and means that a faster outcome would mean that less money is spent on it. AI can also be used to study existing drugs to find new purposes for them, meaning companies can save money and expand their healthcare provider options.
AI Can Make Healthcare More Secure
With all of the sensitive, personal data, along with financial data being stored, there has to be a better way to secure it. Human intervention can help certain threats, but AI can be way more effective. AI can be trained to detect malicious activity so those threats can be found out and eliminated immediately.
AI Can (Potentially) Help Eliminate Bias
Let’s talk about bias in the healthcare world. Factors like gender, ethnicity and race have led to bias within the healthcare world and this can be avoided with the use of AI. AI can be the image of neutrality and impartiality and can reveal truths about ways biases inaccurately influence people’s health.
It may be a long time before healthcare artificial intelligence is fully utilized, but it is definitely to look at the ways it can improve this industry. If your business is interested in incorporating AI, give MyTek a call today at 623-312-2440 to learn about your options.
