As advances are made in artificial intelligence, the healthcare experience is changing for both providers and patients alike. Here are some of the larger ramifications of AI in the healthcare industry.
New data predicts the market for AI-driven healthcare technologies will exceed $6 billion in just three years. That’s a significant leap from its $600 million valuation just four years ago. The surge is being driven largely by growing demand and acceptance among consumers for electronic, data-driven and virtual-based care, and the desire for more convenient, accessible, and affordable care.
While it’s entertaining to speculate on the future of these applications to healthcare, there are several use cases under way today which promise to change the way we think about and deliver care at the individual and population levels. These three areas highlight where AI is already making an impact in the delivery, treatment, and reimbursement of care.
