A healthcare game-changer for medical professionals and patients
AI can act as a “second opinion” for physicians, particularly lending decision support to newer practitioners. Among practitioners of all levels, diagnosis aided by machine learning would lend patients much-needed diagnostic backup.
Matching a patient’s symptoms to a disease is a skill at the heart of successful healthcare. Historically, diagnosis has relied upon the subjective expertise and judgment of practitioners in each individual patient case. AI can profoundly increase the success rates of diagnostics by offering insights from patterns within symptoms from a large number of patients. Instead of a doctor being limited to what they can currently see, with machine learning and deep learning, they have insight into cases around the whole world — not just local and personal experience — to assist with diagnosis.
