The global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the implementation of Artificial Intelligence and robotics. AI systems like Siri or Alexa have already taken over the world and AI has also become a game-changer in the industry that needs it the most – healthcare.
Artificial Intelligence has transformed the way healthcare is provided, resulting in substantial improvements in inpatient care. But how exactly is AI changing the healthcare industry?
1. Fast & Accurate Diagnosis
AI in combination with robotics technology allows significant amounts of medical information to be processed faster, more accurately and advises doctors on a patient’s health. An AI-based software can analyze and store massive amounts of health data – every symptom, case, treatment, and response – and come to conclusions considerably faster than any healthcare worker. Some AI applications are already being used to diagnose diseases like cancer more accurately and in their early stages.
2. Patient Support
AI and robotics have the potential to revolutionize patient care by performing human functions like making sick or elderly patients feel less lonely. They are like personal assistants. Conversational AI can help patients stay optimistic and remind them to take their medication, while companion robots can carry out simple routine check-ups such as temperature, blood pressure, and sugar levels. AI combined with robotics can help the elderly remain independent longer, reducing the need for hospitalization and care homes.
3. Assistance to Healthcare Providers
There is a lot of work to do in a hospital, and healthcare professionals could use a helping hand. From simple laboratory robots to highly complex surgical robots, they can either aid doctors or perform the tasks themselves.
In addition to surgery, medical robots are used in hospitals to perform repetitive tasks, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and more. Robots can take care of bringing items to patients and cleaning so that nurses can spend more time with the patients. Moreover, hospitals need to run constant sanitation activities, especially during the global pandemic, so robots are used to do the cleaning and disinfection of hospital premises.
Artificial Intelligence and robotics are facilitating streamline service delivery to patients. It has enabled healthcare professionals to digitize their services, resulting in better patient care delivery.
