The field of health care has experienced expansive progress in the past decades. But at the same time, the practice of medicine has become increasingly dehumanized. Doctors have less time to spend with their patients, which means more misdiagnoses and other mistakes.
On top of that, human practitioners are prone to error. There are around 10,000 diseases, which is far too many for any doctor to recall. They’re most likely to diagnose according to what information is at the top of their minds—a problem that artificial intelligence can easily avoid.
Technology won’t solve every problem in our current system, and it certainly won’t replace doctors. But in combination with human talent, AI will yield groundbreaking results, minimizing medical errors and unnecessary procedures and creating better treatment plans.
