How Big Data and AI are Driving Change in the

Healthcare Segment?

For a while, technology has been transforming the way humans interact

and the way businesses conduct themselves. It has largely impacted the

healthcare industry, personalizing it to improve diagnostics and providing

predictive and enhance care. Accessibility to healthcare is also a result of

emerging technologies and their integration with healthcare units.

While it is a fact that robots and machines will never really replace human

beings in the healthcare i.e. the doctors, and the nurses and other

providers, they will definitely transform a lot of aspects of care in order to

ensure swift delivery, convenience to the patients and better outcomes.

Doctors need to stay updated with the latest diseases that are spreading in

the atmosphere, need to know of the latest research outcomes, and be

updated with the latest cure in the healthcare industry. Imagine walking

into a doctor's clinic, and telling them the symptoms that you are probably

going through. The doctor can, using the computer or their smart systems,

pull out latest data or research into the symptoms you have just talked

about. This will help them provide better treatment, and promising faster

recovery. When a human looks at your MRI or other scans, it is possible

that they miss out on certain aspects. But, a computer will point towards

the minutest detail making caregiving easy and immediate. Once your issue

is identified, giving care becomes easy and personalized.

When it comes to emerging technologies associated with healthcare, there

are three that immediately come to your mind- Big Data, Artificial

Intelligence and Internet of Things. Combining the three, caregiving has

become more personalized and effective.

Big Data is already huge, and is making quite an effort to revolutionize

healthcare. On the other hand AI is just an emerging technology, yet it is all

set to enter into our lives and improve it in a tremendous fashion. When

you talk about AI, you will see that it has blended in the cars, Google

searches, and in the many live suggestions such as Apple's Siri, Microsoft's

Cortana, OK Google and Amazon's Echo. They use natural-language

processing to help you with basic stuff, and enhancing your interaction.

Now, let's translate this efficiency that has been depicted by AI and Big Data

into healthcare.

With these technologies in healthcare, you can organize the patient routes

and personalize the treatment plans for a more targeted outcome.

Let's have a quick look at the changes these two technologies will bring

when integrated together.

Data Management in Healthcare

Data management is one of the primary applications of Big Data combined

with Artificial Intelligence. From collecting the data to storing it,

normalizing it and tracing the lineage, data management plays a pivotal

role in managing healthcare systems. With this terrific combination, mining

through the health records, analyzing them to understand the current state

of the patient's health and their history as well as mining through latest

research is made easy and convenient. Now, you can provide personalized

care through the records and the lineage they hold.

Designing Treatment Plans

For a while, IBM Watson has been collaborating with oncologists to offer

best-in-class care decisions to the patients. A three-pronged approach has

been devised for the same that helps doctors take a look at some of the best

protocols for care to be given to the cancer patients. With CareEdit tools

that come with this massive integration of two technologies, a proper

guideline has been readied for treatment to be given to the different types

of cancers.

CareGuide offers information on clinical decision support system while

CareView helps analyse the outcome of the past clinical decisions, to

understand what type of treatment the patient received, and how did they

benefit from it.

There are apps being developed to deliver mental health treatments in a

remote environment. With this app, people can analyze their own moods,

and gather coping strategies that work best for them.

This combination works best to design treatment plans for Oncology which

has a mix of structured and unstructured data coming in.

Automating Repetitive Tasks

In healthcare you need cognitive assistant that can assist you in clinical

decision making. When used in radiology, it can detect problems and spots

in the images faster and in a more reliable fashion as against when done

manually.

Identifying certain diseases, preventing their scalability in the body etc. are

repetitive tasks that can be done using machines. You can feed in some

logic to the machines that can help them identify certain diseases.

Such machines are still in their nascent stage, and some of them result in

poor diagnostic performance, which is why it has not adopted by a huge

user base.

Enhanced Consultations

If you are unable to get an appointment with your doctor, you no longer

need to wait till it is available. Turn to the app that has derived using a

combination of AI and Big Data which helps in online medical assistance

and consultation. Such system combines personal medical history and

common medical knowledge to offer consultation on the illness. With such

systems, you can tell patients on their issues, the medications they should

take, remind them of these medications, and follow up on how they are

feeling. Basic treatments can be availed with such systems.

With such amazing benefits associated with Big Data and AI, healthcare is

in for a truly reforming time. The remote treatments have improved

significantly, and offer health assistance for chronic diseases to those

residing in remote environment. Accessibility and convenience have

resulted from this combination.
