Doctors Find Artificial Intelligence is the Best Prescription for Expert Assistance and Patient Care Posted on : Aug 06 - 2022

In this special guest feature, Amir Atai, Ph.D. is Co-Founder and CEO of Sway AI, examines how AI is changing healthcare by improving the efficiency and quality of care on many fronts, starting with administration. Sway AI is a developer of no-code AI technologies and services. Amir is an expert in complex modeling techniques, math, and statistics, where he has developed cutting-edge modeling tools.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is driving innovation everywhere, including in healthcare. Medical professionals benefit from the ability to apply machine learning (ML) to everything from processing electronic health records (EHRs) to facilitating diagnosis and treatment. While some may feel that AI removes the human element from healthcare, the truth is that automation and ML are making nurses and doctors more efficient, giving them deeper insights, and freeing time to deliver better and more personalized patient care.

AI continues to offer new benefits for healthcare. For applications such as automating paperwork, AI-powered automation relieves the burden of repetitive tasks and reduces human errors. AI is also being used to make surgeons more efficient and medical procedures, and patients also receive benefits through advancements such as personalized treatments and more streamlined visits. Applying AI-powered learning algorithms is improving diagnostic imaging and identifying infection patterns.

The adoption of AI-driven solutions is limited by the cost of software development and the complexity of supporting AI applications. Furthermore, medical experts often complain about the lack of explainability in AI techniques and the lack of sensitivity analysis on the final solution. Fortunately, no-code artificial intelligence solutions are putting AI control in the hands of medical practitioners.

How AI Is Changing Healthcare

AI is improving the efficiency and quality of care on many fronts, starting with administration.

Regular nurses in the U.S. spend an average of 25% of their time on regulatory and administrative tasks, many of which can be automated.  Electronic health records (EHRs) and automated regulatory systems have reduced the administrative workload for nursing staff, giving them more time for patient care. Automating repetitive tasks, such as completing intake forms, note-taking, and scheduling follow-up appointments, also eliminates data entry errors and streamlines administrative tasks. While AI has made administrative tasks more efficient, nurses still need to take charge of patient care. Providing self-service tools such as no-code AI processes allows nurses to design their own processes customized to specific administrative procedures.

Artificial Intelligence is also being used to streamline medical treatment. A virtual nurse can ask about symptoms and provide information about health problems and medications, a helpful tool when patients can’t get an appointment to see a doctor. Furthermore, personalized treatment through biosensors and AI can be effectively achieved by leveraging machine learning techniques and data obtained through specialized biosensors. AI also is being used for health monitoring and to promote patient wellness. View more
