The healthcare industry is a slower adopter of technology and innovation than the other sectors, even before the pandemic. Now, with the paradigm shift caused by a global epidemic and the rapid increase in patient volume due to COVID-19 admissions, healthcare institutions are buried in clutter and disorder, forcing them to revisit their processes and risk response.

With these, the healthcare industry needs transformation focused on their priorities, all while managing their day-to-day functions. Their key priorities include an increased focus on efficiency, an emphasis on digital transformation, and the adoption of technological advancements to streamline processes efficiency and reduce costs.

Innovative technology such as AI comes into play where repetitive tasks can be streamlined to further optimized processes. We know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) outperforms humans in terms of speed and accuracy. It can build a future where healthcare is personalized, prevention-oriented, and affordable—improving both clinical & operational workflows1. Many tech companies nowadays offer AI-powered tools that can substitute for more accurate diagnostics, such as early detection of diseases and production of retina images2.

Benefits of AI in Three Key Areas of Healthcare3

  • Robotics: Robotics can help healthcare providers to conduct repetitive tasks, assist in surgery, and provide patient care.
  • Medical Image Analysis: The use of AI in analyzing patients’ medical images makes a more accurate diagnosis.
  • Precision Medicine: Shying away from traditional medicine, AI brings a more patient-centric approach—bringing prevention, personalization, and precision to everyday practice.
