There has been increasing demand for access to personal health records from patients and many health systems are not prepared to meet these demands. It can be a costly and time consuming process to manually update health records.
AI and Machine Learning can be used to optimize the collection and digitization of electronic health records. This can include character recognition to transform handwritten information into digitized characters. Additionally, AI can be used to help with treatment suggestions, clinical decisions or diagnostics. The large amount of data in the health sector lends itself well to the application of AI and Machine Learning algorithms.
