Video – 7 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Transforming Healthcare
One of the biggest impacts of new technology – and perhaps the most life-changing – will be felt in healthcare.
Diagnosis of illness will be fast and efficient, and medicine will be highly personalised. Wearable technology will be the norm, and we’ll know we are sick before we even get a single symptom. Meanwhile, new drugs will come to market at breakneck speed as clinical trials get faster and more accurate.
Ultimately, we will become our own doctors.
AI is already being used in healthcare, and these seven examples offer a glimpse into our medical future.
CaReMe: Bringing Close Collaborative Care for Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolic Patients
As science continues to uncover commonalities between cardiovascular, renal and metabolism (CVRM), we are focusing on addressing overlapping disease areas and risk factors, instead of treating each condition individually.
Cardiovascular, renal and metabolic diseases are killing over 20 million people each year1–3. Together, these three disease areas are the leading causes of death across the globe2. Cardiovascular deaths could be caused by a metabolic or renal complication, which is common. For example, if you are an adult in the US with diabetes, you could be 1.8 times more likely to be hospitalised for heart attacks than adults without diabetes.4 Or if you develop chronic kidney disease, evidence suggests you are more likely to have a history of hypertension 10 to 30 years before disease onset5 than those who do not develop CKD.
