How AI is Automating The Healthcare Industry



Artificial Intelligence is becoming more and more powerful. AI can do things humans do, but it is quicker and cheaper. Applications of AI in healthcare will help doctors make better decisions, speed up diagnosis, treatment, insurance claims, and reduce patient risk and perform specific tasks such as hospital readmissions.


The potential for both AI and robotics in healthcare is vast. Just as artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are increasingly integrated into our everyday lives, they are also being used in healthcare.


PwC predicts that AI could potentially contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2035. China and the United States will benefit most from the coming AI boom, accounting for nearly 70% of the global impact.

What is Artificial Intelligence?


Artificial intelligence refers to a broad range of technologies that enable computers to perform functions usually associated with humans. These include the ability to speak and write, analyze data, make recommendations, and so forth. Artificial intelligence is a complex field that allows computers to perform functions such as language translation and data analysis.


AI is often used in conjunction with machine learning and data analytics, which enables companies to make intelligent decisions. Machine learning takes data and looks for underlying trends. If software designers spot something relevant to a practical problem, they can use that knowledge to solve specific issues.

What Value Does AI Bring To Healthcare?


AI powers innovation in modern computing by automating trivial manual processes. Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing modern computing, providing value to individuals and businesses by automating processes and analyzing large data sets.


We have highlighted eight ways that showcase how this transformation is currently underway by using AI and machine learning tools:


1. Automating the diagnostics process


2. Supporting doctors and health insurance providers with clinical decision support


3. Identifying patients who need follow-up care or intervention


4. Supporting treatment decisions by recommending treatment options


5. Providing consistent, high quality care through self-learning algorithms that can adapt to changing patient needs over time


6. Enhancing patient experience through virtual assistants and chatbots that provide personalized care while freeing up clinicians to focus on more complex tasks


7. Increasing productivity by automating repetitive tasks such as filling out forms or processing payments


Advances in artificial intelligence have made it possible for doctors to make more informed decisions about their patients by providing them with evidence-based information at their fingertips.



These include patient histories, lab results, medical billing, and claims reports that can be found instantaneously. Artificial intelligence can detect relevant issues and present them to radiologists in a summary view, allowing doctors to make more customized, targeted and accurate decisions.

Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

AI is no longer a thing of science fiction, and we interact with it daily—in many ways, it’s only just beginning and artificial intelligence is finding a plethora of applications in the healthcare sector. Some remain wary of AI for ethics and privacy reasons, or worry that machines will take their jobs. However, there already are some promising applications of AI problem solving in healthcare.


AI is used in healthcare to build machines that detect diseases and identify cancer cells, analyze lab data, medical data, and help ensure early diagnosis. As well as automating revenue cycle management, medical billing, claims, and RPA (companies like Jorie Healthcare Partners for example). AI is also being used to discover new drugs by combining historical data and medical intelligence.


While the potential benefits of artificial intelligence and machine learning for the healthcare industry are quite clear, there are many challenges to overcome. Healthcare organizations have to work within strict government regulations, which are constantly changing. Legacy EHR and Electronic Medical Systems that run on-premises don't necessarily play well with other organizations' ones, either.




Benefiting The Lives of Healthcare Professionals Easier

Healthcare professionals almost unanimously cite cumbersome EHR systems as the bane of their existence. Traditionally, clinicians would manually write down or type observations and patient information. However, the process often involved human error, because no two clinicians did it the same.


However, with the help of AI- and deep learning-backed speech recognition & image recognition technology, interactions with patients, clinical diagnoses, and potential treatments can be augmented and documented more accurately and in near real time.


Companies like Jorie Healthcare Partners have streamlined the onboarding process and integrate seamlessly with all healthcare systems.



Benefits of AI


Automation-


AI can automate workflows, processes and functions, or it can work independently and autonomously from a human team.


Reduce human error-


AI Automated systems and algorithms can be used to eliminate errors in data processing, analytics, claim submission and other tasks.


Eliminate repetitive tasks-


Artificial intelligence can be used to perform repetitive tasks, allowing humans to focus on high-value problems. Artificial intelligence can be used to automate a variety of tasks, from transcribing phone calls and verifying insurance documents to answering simple patient questions.


Fast and accurate-


AI is capable of processing more information faster than humans, and will continue to develop this ability. As an example, Jorie's AI Bot is 100% accurate and 500% faster than the manual process.


Infinite availability-


Artificial intelligence does not require breaks and can work 24 hours a day, seven days a week with zero down time.


Accelerated research and development-


Artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to analyze vast amounts of data quickly, leading to accelerated research and development breakthroughs.
