As we all know, the healthcare sector is the powerhouse of data. The problem occurs when it comes to use this data. It is quite hard to transform this data into actionable one, which will increase the level of value of care. Here comes Artificial Intelligence (AI) to rescue. AI helps the massive amount of Data to be unified and synthesize. AI helps to examine complex Data which is piling up day by day captured and stored in a systematic way.
AI already has impact in every single industry. When it comes to healthcare sector AI will prove to be really a great help. AI will transform the organizations in such a way that they will become learning, health systems, while constantly improving their performance.
Here are some ways AI is making an evolution in the healthcare sector.
AI will improvise the Revenue Cycle Management
AI will increase the revenue cycle management perspective in organizations. The ability of AI to understand, monitor and manage clinical variation for a variety of episodes of care across the care continuum helps health systems to check their performance against bundled payment and other value based arrangements. The introduction of AI to the healthcare sector will enable the organization to make the necessary course corrections to minimize the end-of-year shock when payers reconcile performance against contracts.
Helping in mass studies
According a recent study, a hospital used AI to analyze clinical and genomic data from a population of type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients. This AI analysis identified heretofore unknown three distinct subtypes of T2D patients with distinct clinical and genomic characteristics. This was the best use of AI which demonstrated that the advanced population stratification capability will inform the design of precision treatment regimens.
AI will help monitor a patient
Additionally, AI will also help in the study of applications in preventive care and telemedicine. Recently, for a study, a hospital demonstrated the use of AI to distinguish a control set of healthy patients from Parkinson’s patients. It was thoroughly based on smartphone accelerometer and gyroscope sensor data. Not just that, but going further in the study, with the help of AI, the hospital was able to identify two distinct sub-cohorts of Parkinson’s patients, just because of the gait patterns revealed in the sensor data.
This ability of AI to detect these kind of differences in disease, creates a big hop for the ability of AI, to monitor and proactively manage patients at home, particularly with debilitating diseases like Parkinson’s where the patient are actually unable to provide the necessary updates on their health.
AI will help practice get better
AI will not just stop here but going further it will help augment, amplify, and guide human intelligence, which will lead to the better practices.Additionally, AI will be able to deliver faster insights into which processes are working well for which patients and which ones need to be optimized. These distinctions are very important in the healthcare when it comes to deliver the best.
Once getting introduced, AI is expected to make a revolution in the healthcare sector.
