Artificial intelligence in medicine is a great idea that can greatly improve the patient-doctor communication and healthcare professionals. One of the greatest benefits of AI especially in technology is that it enhances the capacity to process & store large amounts of data. This process is a mainstreamed and standardized manner and translates that information into functional tools.
Artificial Intelligence, a great addition to the expertise of the human factor in healthcare
Artificial intelligence is of great importance in health care. It can collect data over time, access data stored in other computers and go over data written on the internet, online books and research notes in a matter of seconds, and make an educated decision based on all the data it’s been over.
When implementing new technology as a process in our practice many things can go wrong due to lack of knowledge or human error during the implementation phase of the technology. As much as AI as a new technology can be of benefit to healthcare providers it can also prove to be disruptive later down the line mainly due to human error in the past. Before we adopt any new process, or technology it’s important to fully understand it in order to avoid critical or even fatal mistakes.
To make AI as efficient and effective as possible in the future some steps should be taken:
- AI should be used to assist healthcare givers, not always to fully automate the process.
- The adopted platform should be fully understood by all who will be operating the AI system.
- Engage and involve students in discussions and real-time practice with AI systems. The sooner they start practicing the better.
- When implementing the system, have a professional oversee the whole procedure.
