Diagnosis of health conditions to treatment, managing the patient’s health record to patient engagement and adherence… today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is involved at every point in the healthcare industry. AI is re-connecting the modern world with advanced technologies and fostering ‘machines to sense, comprehend, act and learn.’
Artificial Intelligence is now one of the world’s highest-growth industries. According to an Accenture analysis, “AI sector will potentially create $150 billion by 2026 which was valued at about $600 million in 2014.”
AI’s growth is already accelerating and will grow more than 10x in the next ten years. Today, AI has numerous applications in the healthcare industry. It could analyze the risk, discover the genetic codes, do robot-assisted surgeries, and in fact, detect cancer at the earliest. No wonder, it is also delivering the needs related to administrative workflow assistance, rising labour costs, digital expectations from consumers and several other challenges.
The smart AI system is supporting in the therapy areas, diagnostics, creating wearables, and virtual assistants to endorse the healthcare industry. The Virtual Nursing Assistants are remotely assisting in maintaining the patient’s health record, getting to know the patient’s symptoms, and sending the health condition to clinicians as alerts – only when it is essential. It eventually becomes the nurse, monitoring the health condition and adding recommendations in the patient’s treatment.
Timesaving Administrative Workflow Assistant saves the doctors time by assisting in writing the chart notes, prescriptions and ordering tests. This means, “AI is almost saving 17 percent of work time savings for doctors and 51 percent for nurses,” Accenture analysis reported.
The Drug Development Industry has been blessed with the growth of AI in the healthcare industry. The biopharmaceutical companies are utilizing the efficiency of AI and are bringing up accurate medicine with the support of AI knowledge. However, the researchers are in the hunt to come up with pharmaceuticals that are economical, quicker, and more effective.
In 2007, researchers tasked the robot Adam to find out the functions of the yeast, which ended human’s aid by finding out the scientific knowledge behind the functions of yeast. And interestingly, Adam’s friend robot Eve found out that triclosan could act on DHFR even in pyrimethamine-resistant parasites.
PathAI – An Accurate Cancer Diagnosis with AI
PathAI is developing cutting-edge technology using the AI to diagnose and treat the diseases, more effectively. PathAI is assisting pathologists in diagnosing the patients’ diseases accurately by examing each and every tissue from hundreds of patients, every day. It discovers the cancerous cells and helps in providing the best possible treatment for the cancer patients.

You know what?
Communication is an art and art is a form of communication. I hold a Master's in both and I believe that when they both go hand in hand - it is a treat to the senses.
I croon and groove, am a movie buff above all I enjoy writing.
Read, think and write about what appears here cause I like to know myself better.
