By 2030, there will be a shortage of 100,000 physicians in the US. This will mean healthcare providers on every level are going to have to work smarter, not harder. Luckily, technology is behind the many changes the medical field needs and is helping to set up a bright and healthy future.
Artificial intelligence, some of the most fascinating pieces of tech today, is one of the fastest growing tools for healthcare. As a powerful diagnostic tool, developing Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology can help catch and diagnose conditions from glaucoma to heart disease. As research and innovations grow for AI, skin cancers can be quickly diagnosed with more accuracy that just a dermatologist alone, leading to faster solutions for treatment. In a survey among healthcare leaders, AI usage in facilities is predicted to grow across a whole spectrum of clinical decision support, population health, and disease management.
It doesn’t just stop with AI, though; virtual reality, 3D printing, robotics, and more are all playing a huge part in the future of our healthcare.
