Appropriate technologies are of great value to various industries. In particular, in the healthcare industry, digitized processes make it much easier to provide patients with better medical care.

Whether cloud or artificial intelligence, digitization is revolutionizing the healthcare industry. Not only do patients benefit from this through telemedical advice. Doctors also see an advantage in e-health, for example through the exchange of electronic medical records. To optimize the decision making regarding treatment, the medical information and medical history of each patient is taken into account.

Computational Linguistics

Thanks to this AI branch, computers can understand and interpret human language and writing. After thousands of detailed electronic medical records have been analyzed, the appropriate steps for evaluating and managing patients with multiple diseases are shown. E-records or electronic health records (EMR or EHR) increase the productivity and efficiency of medical services. If patient records are available in electronic form, they can be forwarded faster between the individual service providers. This enables smoother processes and takes much less time for the administration, and fewer tests have to be carried out because the information from the file is already available. 

Medical Consultations

AI solutions like Clinithink can analyze the symptoms of a patient and their medical history and provide medical advice based on this analysis. In theory, these types of apps or AI Saas are capable of significantly reducing the rate of misdiagnosis and accelerating medical claims processes.

Cooperation With Science

Partnerships between industry and science are expected to grow further as the pharmaceutical industry begins to adopt AI.

The amount of data in the medical context is growing rapidly: worldwide growth rates of 50 percent for digital health data are recorded annually. Large American companies account for 75 percent of global investments in digital health. The dynamics in care will grow through processes of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data research as well as through available EPA data.

Digitization of the Administration

An example of the application of AI in electronic medical records is the exchange between the X-ray station, the laboratory, and the outpatient departments. This enables the doctors to see an X-ray image of the image promptly and simultaneously while on a computer or tablet. The research was done examining the use of electronic files on tablets and found that there was more time for medical professionals to cater to the needs of all the patients. Doctors are relieved because they can easily have the files on hand and update them and they can also offer help while talking to the patients since the diagrams can be used to clearly explain the illness. For this reason, the use of electronic patient records is being studied further.

AI application in electronic medical records is intended for patients who need constant medical care. For example, people who have had a kidney transplant. Data on blood pressure or weight and prescribed medication can be shared between the patient, clinician, and family doctor.
