How AI Assists Doctors in Inpatient Practice

We have previously discussed how artificial intelligence (AI) allows to improve the quality of outpatient healthcare. Let’s talk more about AI development in the healthcare sector.

Nowadays, heads of healthcare institutions and venture investors heavily invest in the development of medical AI technology. Some of the leading medical institutions in the US (Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Massachusetts General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Hospital, and UCLA Medical Center) have already introduced and are successfully using AI-based applications in inpatient practice, improving diagnosis process and increasing care quality.

AI in the ER and ICU

Patients in severe life-threatening conditions are admitted to the emergency rooms (ER) and intensive care units (ICU). A great number of various indicators, such as blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), liver and kidney function indices and many others, are used to monitor such patients and decide on the required treatment. It is important to process and interpret these data accurately and promptly as the patient’s life depends on it. AI assists MDs in predicting risks of life-threatening conditions and alarms medical staff when an urgent attention is needed.

In 2016, the University of San Francisco has developed and tested an AI-based app designed to detect sepsis (a life-threatening condition that occurs when an infection enters the blood). Using various data (blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, respiratory rate, SpO2, WBC count, patient’s age and others), AI predicts the risk of sepsis occurrence, alarming medical staff if needed. This tool allowed to reduce the mortality rate in the hospital by ≥12%. Duke University and the Johns Hopkins Hospital use similar AI algorithms for early detection of sepsis.

Amsterdam And Helsinki Launch Open AI Registers

Amsterdam and Helsinki both launched an Open AI Register at the Next Generation Internet Summit. According to sources, these two cities are the first in the world that are aiming to be open and transparent about the use of algorithms and AI in the cities.

Currently, in the beta version, Algorithm Register is an overview of the artificial intelligence systems and algorithms used by the City of Amsterdam. The register is an effort to show where the cities are currently making use of AI and how the algorithms work.

Jan Vapaavuori, Mayor of Helsinki stated, “Helsinki aims to be the city in the world that best capitalises on digitalisation. Digitalisation is strongly associated with the utilisation of artificial intelligence. With the help of artificial intelligence, we can give people in the city better services available anywhere and at any time. In the front rank with the City of Amsterdam, we are proud to tell everyone openly what we use Artificial Intelligence for.”

Chatbot vs Virtual Assistants: The 4 Key Differences

Conversational AI has seen an exponential rise in popularity in the last decade and has become mainstream over the past two years. Enterprise adoption of Conversational AI is accelerating. Businesses are investing millions of dollars for conversational AI applications with massive expectations to improve customer experience and operational efficiencies.

Gartner_ says – “By 2022, 70% of white-collar workers will interact with conversational platforms on a daily basis.”_

Chatbots and Virtual Assistants are leveraging AI technologies to provide innovative and efficient solutions benefiting customers, employees, and partners. In this scenario, it is crucial to understand the fundamental differences between a Chatbot and a more sophisticated solution like a Virtual assistant.

Businesses and professionals who are planning or implementing a conversational AI solution should know this difference to reap benefits from these technologies. Without such proper understanding, there will be a high chance of failure to meet the expectations.
