The potential that data science and artificial intelligence (AI) hold to revolutionize the delivery of healthcare is undeniable. The healthcare sector is well positioned to take advantage of what these technologies have to offer since they store and manage tons of lifetime patient data. From diagnostics, interpretation of lab tests and scheduling appointments to personalizing care, finding cures to conditions, and creating new and innovative solutions to long-standing problems like COVID-19, AI and data science offer endless possibilities.

However, compared to other sectors, healthcare lags behind in technology adoption. We have seen how data-led technologies have helped transform the way other sectors deliver services to consumers, and there’s a need to learn from these examples and apply the lessons to the unique context of healthcare.

The age of COVID-19 demands the introduction of new cures and new healthcare procedures to protect us better as we move ahead. Know how AI and data science hold the key in this blog post here.

As care delivery continues to evolve from reactive disease treatment to proactive, preventive care, more organizations are looking toward digitization in healthcare with advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to assist with drawing actionable conclusions from their big data resources. AI along with sensor technology can unlock the potential of data, providing actionable insights to guide clinical decisions to diagnose, treat and manage chronic conditions remotely, thus, providing the right clinical intervention to the right patient at the right time.
