PREPARE for Impact- Artificial Intelligence Promises a New Paradigm for Healthcare
From interpreting lab tests, simplifying in-vitro fertilization, and personalizing cancer care to monitoring surgical video in real-time or aiding in the diagnosis of pneumothorax, the creativity and ingenuity evident in the flourishing AI research community is both astounding and heartening. #artificialintelligence#healthcare#WMIF#WorldMedicalinnovationforum The central dogma of the Information Technology requirement in medicine is software that can efficiently ‘read •• mine •• understand’ medical data; such as patient diagnostic information/ health data, radiography images, clinical trial data, and drug combination therapy data etc.
The health care system contains not only the simple text records but also complex data ranging from graphs from the diagnosis labs to images from the radiology instruments.
What if we could use image and text analytics to produce a computerized radiologist assistant which could quickly filter to clinicians/radiologists for decision support? What if computers can combine imaging data along with the rest of clinical patient data to summaries of the patients’ conditions, coincidental diagnosis, automatic triage and a second opinion, as well as statistical comparisons to similar patients?

Worldwide, the cancer of the cervix (lower portion of the uterus) is the fourth most common cancer. It is also one of the most common causes of deaths due to cancer in women.
Most of my patients that participated in my public health project had wither dementia, Alzheimer's or were frail and sometimes immobile.

The healthcare industry is currently
experiencing change at an unprecedented rate. Change is not only occurring in
the technology used in diagnostics and care delivery, but this change is so
fundamental that it could, and likely will, fundamentally alter the business
model of the industry. Today we have fitness bands, healthcare
apps, appointment schedulers, health chats and several such means to access
healthcare but one thing that all of this does not necessarily correlate with
high quality of care or better outcomes. We need to understand that “Not even a
Ferrari will get us to our destination without a driver.”Formula of Driver: Driver = (Need + Incentive) where; Incentive = (Value + Reward) Need = (Gap + Demand) To define the best drivers, we need to
first address the need. Need might not make economic or business sense but it
