Artificial Intelligence Brings Benefits to Healthcare

Artificial Intelligence Brings Benefits to Healthcare

The healthcare industry is notorious for its reliance on technology these days. With so many compliance laws and procedures that must be followed in the correct way, many businesses have turned to technology to make their jobs easier. Medical IT in particular can create a lot of concerns regarding infrastructure design and data sharing. How can innovations in artificial intelligence change this? Let’s find out.

One of the biggest issues facing the healthcare industry is just the sheer amount of physical documentation they deal with day-in and day-out. This documentation is used to keep track of patients, processes, and procedures. According to SiliconAngle, Dr. Vasi Philomin of Amazon Web Services claims that a massive 1.2 billion medical documents are created every day in the healthcare industry. These numbers reflect the United States alone, and it’s very difficult to keep track of such a large number of documents on a daily basis. It’s no wonder that medical institutions want to use technology to make managing these documents easier.

One of the simplest ways to make managing such a large number of documents easier is using artificial intelligence. Due to the menial and time-consuming nature of sorting and organizing this many documents, A.I. is perfectly suited to tackle this responsibility. For one, it’s practically impossible to accomplish this task in a way that is budget-friendly, so it makes sense to automate such a task with A.I. In doing so, efficiency of care and ease of use will improve for patients.

While the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) makes this situation more complicated, Amazon Web Services is aiming to challenge it with this new initiative. It has a service called Amazon Comprehend Medical which attempts to make it easier to find candidates for clinical trials. Imagine sifting through countless files trying to find qualified candidates--this is a task that can be more efficiently assigned to artificial intelligence, just like any other repetitive task.
