Q: What excites you most about the application of AI in healthcare?

 

We have seen healthcare transform into a data-intensive discipline over the past decade with the increased use of EHRs, wearable sensors, etc. I am excited to see the synergy of domain knowledge and machine intelligence in improving overall human health.

As the COVID-19 crisis unfolds, the unsteady response can be boiled down to one explanation: We weren’t prepared. 
 
News reports show that even countries with the strongest health care systems have been short of health care workers, hospital space and personal protective equipment for medical staff. And without coordinated systems for managing equipment, hospital resources and operations, national leaders have been forced to make decisions on the fly and learn from the mistakes of other countries.

How modern technologies can help to achieve “health for all”

Posted by Foundation Botnar on Apr 8, 2020 5:59:12 PM

So-called “frontier technologies” offer a transformative potential towards reaching universal health coverage in low and middle income countries. This will only be achieved, though, if the technology-based solutions are scaled-up and systematically integrated into existing healthcare structures. Moreover, fundamental technical, ethical and legal questions regarding data security, fairness, non-discrimination and privacy need to be addressed. The World Health Organization (WHO) could assume a leading role in facilitating the development of a global regulatory framework.
