Artificial intelligence – Changing the role of medical devices in patient care
Partha Marella - Executive Vice President | March 13, 2019

Traditionally, medical devices were restricted to giving a certain set of outputs for a complimentary set of inputs, which would be used as information by doctors to make decisions. The accuracy of decisions would be purely at the professional’s discretion.

But as healthcare becomes more specialized and complex, quality and attention to detail is struggling to keep up with patient requirements.The key to bridging this gap lies in medical technology (Medtech) and how AI, IoT and Analytics can be used to enhance the scope of traditional devices used by both healthcare professionals as well as patients.With intelligence powering Medtech, decision making becomes more certain, preventive care is more achievable, and patient centricity is front and center.
