Healthcare - Artificial Intelligence & Blockchain
Global healthcare is changing. Nowadays, people are living longer, but until now there are limited equipment and resources specialized in the management of the complex health care challenges that come with long term management of conditions such as cancer, dementia, or diabetes. In the medical field, doctors have found a wide range of application of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence helps doctors assess the health risks of a patient and then uses the intelligence to not only improve the quality of care, but also monitor and advise patients on the side effects of certain medications. The impact of Artificial Intelligence across the globe is disruptive, with technologically advanced tools enabling better decision-making, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic and acute illnesses. For instance, IBM Watson, an Artificial Intelligence enabled tool is currently widely used in the Middle East and other parts of the world for effective diagnosis of certain cancers. Artificial intelligence is a revolution in the global healthcare system especially in Kuwait and the Middle East region as the region has demonstrated the acceptance of the change through the huge investment and implementation of this technology. The implementation of the technology in healthcare in the Middle East has disrupted the current status quo.
Artificial intelligence allows doctors and other medical professionals to make more accurate and faster diagnosis. In medicine, Artificial intelligence uses mathematical algorithms and data-science from the human body to make diagnosis, better than doctors can do. This gives specialists the ability to take immediate actions for diseases that may otherwise become severe.
