What is AI in Healthcare?

Home / FAQS / What is AI in Healthcare?

Recently there has been tremendous progress in artificial intelligence (AI) with the invent of deep neural
networks, natural language processing, computer vision and robotics. These techniques are now actively being
applied in healthcare with a view that health service activities currently being delivered by clinicians and
administrators predicted to be further augmented and organized by AI in the years to come. However, there has
also been exceptional hype about the abilities of AI with a mistaken notion that AI will replace human clinicians
altogether. These perspectives are inaccurate, and if a balanced perspective of the limitations and promise of AI
is taken, one can gauge which parts of the health system AI can be integrated to make a meaningful impact. The four
main areas where AI would have its major role include patient administration, clinical decision support, patient
monitoring and healthcare interventions.
