Artificial Intelligence, AI, looks exceedingly promising for use in healthcare. AI in healthcare can help to address staff shortages, providing useful data at fast speeds, and even helping with targeted disinfection to kill potentially deadly bacteria such as C. diff.
Smart devices monitor patients in intensive care and in other units, something that can be exceedingly improved with AI. Artificial intelligence is applicable to a few areas within the healthcare sector, such as:
The NHS is using AI for a more accurate diagnosis of coronary heart disease and to decrease the need for unnecessary and invasive tests like angiograms. Called the Heartflow FFRCT Analysis, this technology uses deep learning and applies it to patients’ CT scans in order to create 3D models of coronary arteries and identify potential issues.
Applying complex algorithms, it solves millions of equations and understands with high accuracy what impacts blockages have on blood flow to the heart. Similarly, there is an app by Babylon Health provided to the NHS that assesses medical symptoms by using AI. It helps to triage patients who have basic queries. In some circumstances, it can negate the need for a GP visit.
The healthcare industry deals with massive amounts of data, particularly with patient records, studies, and tests being digitised. AI can easily analyse and make sense of terabytes of information through machine and deep learning.
Deep learning is a subset of machine learning, training artificial neural networks to achieve high accuracy in analysing, processing, and identifying patterns in data. Machine learning is an approach to attain artificial intelligence.
Algorithms especially constructed to identify thousands of certain objective features in data can accurately predict prognoses of patients. Hospitals and other medical facilities can also make further improvements in other areas of the healthcare value chain.
Machine learning is assisting in all areas of the healthcare industry, including healthcare cleaning standards. Our Galaxy MoonBeam 3 provides the ideal environmentally-friendly solution for efficient and effective disinfection – a vital component in the healthcare sector.
Providing environmentally-friendly and efficient solutions, AI in healthcare has seen an increase in use as technology evolves. UV-C disinfecting technology is a game-changer, ensuring that highly-susceptible areas in hospitals can be thoroughly disinfected of dangerous diseases.
