Artificial Intelligence (AI) has brought about an undeniable impact in reshaping processes and services across the industries. And with the adventitious occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic, various institutions found their day-to-day business approach stirred up by the unfamiliar situation. Current developments and emerging trends exhibit the increased preference on less-to-no contact activities and transactions that are also seen in the healthcare sector, with the growth of the telemedicine sectors and e-health services.
With the sustained transformation of the healthcare industry and the demands of the transpiring health crisis, further integration of technology to the advancement of sciences pushes forward the frontiers of customary health services. This presents an imperative response of developing health IT and heightened data management measures.
Furthermore, we have witnessed a shortage of healthcare workers globally during this pandemic and AI can play a key role in this regard. As the McKinsey and Company reports on Transforming Healthcare with AI, "we need not only to attract, train and retain more healthcare professionals, but we also need to ensure their time is used where it adds most value—caring for patients."
