The growth in India and eventually globally seems inevitable when considering the AI and applications.
There is a wide array of different applications and schemes in the healthcare sector where AI has, and will, be proven to be massively beneficial to the populace of India, such as:
Mining medical records.
Designing health treatment plans.
Predicting early detection of various life-threatening diseases.
Cancer and diabetes screening.
AI-based tools for eyes and other related treatments.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Diagnosis and Management.
AI-powered tools for screening of Covid-19.
Accurate and fast health diagnostic results.
Helps in the drug designing process.
Predict timely outcomes for pregnant women and newborns, with marked improvements over conventional statistical methods.
Consistent monitoring of newborns identified as having low birth weight.
And with India dedicating 3-4% of its GDP to growth and efficiency in the health sector, AI and PMED could play a prominent role.
And one does not have to think very hard about the massive cost savings as AI solutions and PMED specifically move to not only become a ‘Fit for Duty’ technology but would revolutionize triage in the clinic and the Emergency room. Given the 1.5 billion population in India, all of these developments would be life-changing, both for the patient and the country.
AI technology will get a big global boost as the theme of the G20 in New Delhi in September 2023.
