Ahead of his workshop session 'Working together with enterprises and clinicians to build tools and work flows that are compliant and scalable' at Intelligent Health UK 2022 (6-7 April, ExCeL London), we asked Kyle Giddens, CEO & Co-Founder, medcase health his thoughts on the future of AI in healthcare.
If you could solve any global health problem in the world with AI, what would it be?
Presuming that was solved, what would your second choice be?
How do you think AI will make its biggest mark in healthcare in the next 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
What excites you most about the application of AI in healthcare?
To lead to better patient outcomes and make the world a better place, of course! We often talk about technology ‘making the world a better place’. But how often does that happen? In healthcare, AI has made the world a better place!
What’s your biggest fear in relation to the application of AI in the health/medicine field?
How do you think AI will cause human contact in healthcare to change in the future?
Healthcare will always require compassion, kindness and affection - qualities provided by human contact that we are not trying to replace using AI. However, AI does allow, from the clinician’s point of view, for more mundane tasks to be automatically completed. From the patient’s point of view, AI allows them to efficiently prepare before in-person visits. Ultimately, this frees up time for both the patients and clinicians to make their in-person opportunities more meaningful.
What does AI mean for the skill requirements of health professionals? How will it change?
Which 2 people do you admire most in the world of AI in healthcare in terms of their work?
