How Artificial Intelligence will Improve Healthcare in 2019?

Artificial intelligence (AI) can be defined as the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines or computer systems. These processes include learning reasoning and self-correction.  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Science are the advancements in technology that are increasingly grabbing attention across different industries, genres as well as spectrums. This article discusses the impact that Artificial Intelligence will specifically have on the healthcare industry in 2019.

In 2019, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning tools will continue to help physicians make more informed decisions, hospitals achieve better outcomes, and patients receive more timely as well as personalized care.  It has recently been reported ongoing digitalization and the introduction of new technologies in this industry are already breaking down boundaries as well as creating patient-centric healthcare systems.

The following are some examples of how Artificial Intelligence can help healthcare organizations:

1. An analysis can be made on similar cases in different hospitals of different cities. That is, a common cause of an illness/injury/health condition can be determined. For example, different cases of accidents in and around cities such as Jacksonville, Miami and/or Tampa can be analyzed. The age of the victim, his/her habits as well as the relevant circumstances can be considered. These aspects can help insurance companies compare cost and better optimize the plans offered.

2. Predictive element of care can assist providers in reaching patients before the occurrence of an injury or illness. This is possible with Artificial intelligence tools studying and analyzing the lifestyles, medical conditions, residing environments of patients to predict when they can face any health related issue. Medication or proper care can be provided before it becomes more serious, hence saving significant time as well as money for both sides.  Predictive AI for care, claims, and other information can also help providers come up with cheaper and more effective health plans.

3. Artificial Intelligence can automate administrative tasks. Technology such as voice-to-text transcriptions could help order tests, prescribe medications and write chart notes. All AI enabled systems can sift through clinical and claims data to highlight errors in diagnosis, payments, frauds, and workflow issues, thus providing a true value-based care system. Another example is of physicians being able to analyze thousands of medical papers using natural language processing. This will save a lot of precious time and also ensure 100% accuracy.

4. It can be of great use to the concept of Telehealth which is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care and health administration.  Artificial Intelligence can play a role providers use machine learning to help analyze clinical data in a patient’s electronic health or medical record (EHR/EMR) to provide patient care recommendations. In addition, chatbots can be developed on the websites of healthcare providers to recommend a diagnosis based on symptoms and patient health data.

These are just some of the advantages that Artificial Intelligence can provide healthcare providers across the United States. But a lot depends on the company that provides these services. Technological expertise and team of skilled developers are the key factors that need to be considered. Having saidthat, SGS Technologie is an artificial intelligence solutions provider headquartered in Jacksonville (Florida) having delivered solutions to clients in regions that include regions such as Tampa, Miami, Tallahassee and Austin (TX).
