Digital transformation is the focus of many healthcare organizations today. With digital advancements like artificial intelligence and predictive analysis not only cutting costs in the long-term but providing more accurate diagnosis’s, providers are investing in the technology. Read on to learn more about the top uses for AI today.

AI Evolving Patient Monitoring

Thanks to artificial intelligence, sensors, and predictive analytics, patient monitoring is improving, according to a recent study by Frost & Sullivan. Healthcare systems invested more than $566 million in this technology during 2018, and the spend isn’t likely to stop.

“Patient monitoring has evolved from ad hoc to continuous monitoring of multiple parameters, causing a surge in the amount of unprocessed and unorganized data available to clinicians for decision-making,” according to Frost & Sullivan researchers. “To extract actionable information from this data, healthcare providers are turning to big data analytics and other analysis solutions.”

Tech Driven Healthcare

The National Health Service, a UK based organization, has created a long-term plan for how healthcare services will be remade with technology within the next 10 years. The NHS workforce will see considerable changes in the coming years due to digital technology like AI and a younger workforce driving innovation.

“Digital healthcare technologies, defined here as genomics, digital medicine, artificial intelligence, and robotics, should not just be seen as increasing costs, but rather as a new means of addressing the big healthcare challenges of the 21st century,” said the NHS. These digital technologies may be an upfront cost but will help manage long-term conditions, diagnose infection, and promote better health, saving institutions money over time.
