There’s never been a greater need or opportunity for tech to improve healthcare. Here are three ways machine learning is set to transform hospitals and medical research.
1. Personalise patient care
Patients shouldn’t be treated like customers, and visits to the hospital shouldn’t be seen as transactions. Machine learning enables personalised care so patients receive the most targeted treatments available.
2. Simplify health data analysis
Healthcare organisations need better ways to extract insights from medical records and clinical trial information. Machine learning algorithms can make sense of large amounts of data to draw out key learnings for healthcare staff.
3. Accelerate research and innovation
Clinical research takes a long time, and may not yield very accurate results. This can prevent patients from receiving the best care, and drives up costs for hospitals. Machine learning can handle much more data, much more quickly.
