Medical errors are as fatal as terminal diseases. Often numerous patients die due to the recurring medical errors in the healthcare systems. The modern healthcare sector is continuously challenged with this festering issue as they strive to deliver safe and higher quality care.
Despite the upheaval that AI has created in the healthcare space, the lack of well-annotated data (has been the biggest challenge in development of disease detection AI engines. It slows the process and is very expensive) Moreover, annotation and labeling demand a heavy workload from medical doctors in the development stage of medical AI engines.
Digitization has crawled into every phase of healthcare. As consumers of healthcare are gaining more medical knowledge, the demand for better service and outcomes is increasing like never before; and the only means to meet this need is through technology. “The best way to deliver healthcare to all at high quality is to be preventative and reach the consumers early before they need it,” notes Tanveer Patel, Co-Founder and CEO of ConcertCare.

Cardiovascular disease or CVD is a global problem. Though typically viewed as a “rich-world disease”, it has now migrated to many developing countries. The rising prevalence of CVD, today, calls for cost-effective and intelligent patient-centric healthcare technology that empowers care teams and has a real impact on patients.
The value of AI has been accelerating the healthcare space at an increasing rate. In fact, AI-powered medical diagnostics is today driving the critical changes across the care continuum. However, AI technologies are not believed to replace doctors despite its transformative power. “We view AI only as a new medical device that allows doctors to ‘better see’ each case,” says Gabriela Fuentes, COO, Transmural Biotech or TMB.
When Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) were introduced in the early 1970s the vision was clear: digitizing patient records would make healthcare more efficient, and better for the patient and provider.
Shining a light between the rock and the hard place: The importance of information to empower health-app users
