India has gained a big name in the field of healthcare with the use of advanced technologies. Various new technologies are implemented every day in our day to day life. With advancement in technology, people expect quality healthcare services at an affordable price. Artificial intelligence (A.I.) is one of the current trends in the field of healthcare worldwide. It is helping hospitals and healthcare industry as it takes care of all data which are directly and indirectly helping for an effective and error-free treatment of patients. To get future-ready, we also need to know about A.I. and how it helps for patient’s betterment.
There are number of areas where A.I. is spreading its hands to help the hospitals give safe and quick service to their patients.
With use of A.I., the patient insurance coverage is confirmed digitally. It saves time, and patients receive prompt service without wasting time for manually calling the insurance company for patient information verification. A.I. takes care of this crucial part of patient document verification.
Patients get instant and correct information about their queries, and their doubts are cleared within no time with help of live chat-bots which saves patient’s travelling time. It is helpful for doctor also, as the patient’s general queries are solved through automated machine, and doctor’s saved time can be utilized to attend other critical patients. With the use of live chat-bots, patients can personally discuss with their doctor, which indirectly helps patient to minimize mental stress.
Use of Password System to Protect Data
All the data saved by A.I. system in hospitals is password protected. So, patient’s right to maintain confidentiality, which is very sensitive subject in some cases, is maintained.
