How Will Artificial Inteligence Impact Healthcare?

SHARE

There’s no doubt that tech has a major role inside healthcare sectors – updating records, boosting care delivery, and easing the processes. But what can artificial intelligence bring more? Find out below.

The ever-growing health needs of people and the small budgets raised some issues for health authorities. UK’s National Health Service came with an economical, yet reliable solution: introducing AI to fasten health services. Knowing that smartphones are the first ones picked up when searching for a health care provider, NHS decided to invest in AI-powered phone applications. The list continues with investments as artificial intelligence labs and a jaw-dropping technology that will be handled by robots in two years from now on.

However, the last OpenText research displays that the British are pretty skeptical about mixing delicate health matters with robots.

Divided Opinions Amongst British

In the past trials, AI proved to set a diagnose with amazing accuracy, having an enhanced sense of detail. However, only 26% of the UK population affirmed they would put their trust in robots.
Some of them – 21% – appreciated the quick diagnose perspective, admitting that work-life balance leaves no time for a doctor appointment.

One in five believes that Brexit will hit the country’s finances and no funds will be allocated for these innovations.

Only 11% stated they find AI trustworthy, while the rest of them need to make steps to trust it because AI will be implemented across the British healthcare sector soon.

To cease the controversy around this subject, Mark Bridger explained that despite high efficiency, robots will never ‘replace people’. Although some people already made a false assumption due to sci-fi films, robotics will just ease the life of people, by widening the access to information, helping people take fast decisions and provide much-needed services that meet quality. Also, it will make life less boring by filling the routine tasks.
