Doctors and health tech experts inform that AI is no more alien to the domain, the pandemic has emphasized that it is a necessity and not a luxury

The country is reeling under the impact of the second wave of COVID-19; many experts cite the third wave could be equally fatal. As the pandemic is fast-moving and difficult to tackle, many healthcare experts are trying to battle out the epidemic with technology. Every segment of healthcare is taking an increasing interest in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools. The experts from healthcare have inferred that the right blend of AI and a human touch will help in achieving the necessary transformation in the segment.

Adding to it, Sean Narayanan, CEO and Board Member, Apexon, said, “AI and ML-driven technology is helping with image scan analysis and is helping reduce the workload on hospital staff. Several programs are now available for chest screening that can highlight lung abnormalities in a chest X-ray scan and provide a COVID-19 risk evaluation faster than before. Digital medical consulting platforms are also being developed with a unified view of the patient’s medical history to provide treatment remotely and reduce the chances of hospitalization. AI-driven solutions like applications let healthcare staff know when to expect patients and inform them of the travel and waiting time involved to see/meet the healthcare provider, function based on traffic patterns and scheduling information. This helps patients decide when they may leave for the facility and reduce human contact as they would not have to wait at the healthcare provider’s office.”
