Artificial intelligence is taking the world by storm, particularly in the field of medicine where its application has tremendously increased. The use of artificial intelligence in medicine and related fields has impacted service provision in diverse ways.
One of the principal ways in which AI has impacted medical services is in the area of medical service provision. Human-mediated service provision is potentially characterized by the unprecedentedly high rates of medical errors. The incorporation of artificial intelligence thereof has led to a significant reduction in the prospect of medical officers making errors, particularly in areas such as internal organ surgery. Here, the use of artificial intelligence-enabled surgical assistants aid in numerous ways including patient identification, site of surgery identification, and ensuring that the right surgical procedure is implemented thereof.
Additionally, artificial intelligence has also tremendously revolutionized the manner in which service providers render patient service. The use of wearable technologies and gadgets in the medical field has enabled medical workers to improve the way in which patients and medical workers interact. The use of microchips which can remotely communicate with healthcare centers provides nurses with remote diagnosis systems, therefore eliminating the need for patients to visit medical facilities for unavoidable issues. This application has made wearable technologies some of the most incredible technologies that have served to revolutionize the manner in which healthcare service is provided to patients.
Artificial intelligence has also found application when it comes to aiding in human-mediated complex systems such as motion and thinking. The use of machine learning is meant to help machines ‘learn’ of new ways of making it possible artificial intelligence to be used in the creation of solutions for patients with mobility problems as well as mental and sight issues. Machine learning has become the central interface between humans and machines, enabling machines to mimic human activities such as cognitive functions and walking.
The general impact of AI’s application in the medical field is diverse. It ranges from the increased efficiencies of medical procedures to the reduction of errors when it comes to sensitive medical procedures. Also, artificial intelligence is bound to provide for new opportunities such as aiding in easing logistical nightmares that healthcare service providers go through when it comes to service provision. Artificial intelligence will to that effect help in making sure that medical procedures are safer, faster, efficient, and successful; better than instances where artificial intelligence is not applied.
