«The pandemic accelerated the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) in remote patient care. Physicians are increasingly using digital patient monitoring to better track health data, identify abnormalities, and provide patient-specific treatment — all without the need for in-person interaction. Additionally, emergency departments are employing remote monitoring solutions to allow some patients to leave the hospital sooner. These transformative technologies are leading to better outcomes for patients and reduced healthcare costs.»

«AI use cases continue to grow in healthcare, as constant learning and training of algorithms results in smarter technology as well as improved patient experiences.»

«Most AI applications in healthcare use “augmented intelligence,” which curates the algorithms’ output to provide clinicians with direction on “where to look” when they get the analysis. It also plays an important quality control role in delivery of the service. Augmented intelligence focuses on the technology’s assistive role, and is designed to enhance, rather than replace, human intelligence.»
