Scope of the Report

Artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare is the use of algorithms and software to approximate human cognition in the analysis of complex medical data. Specifically, AI is the ability of computer algorithms to approximate conclusions without direct human input. The primary aim of health-related AI applications is to analyze relationships between prevention or treatment techniques and patient outcomes.

Key Market Trends

Patient Management Application to Witness Significant Growth

  • Effective management of patients is one of the most important needs for hospital facilities. Several studies have demonstrated the importance of patient engagement in improving health outcomes. Lacking such engagement has been a major contributor to preventable deaths.
  • There has been a rise in the overall healthcare costs with increasing demand for better results. This is increasing the expectation of more effective data management solutions in order to improve quality and increase patient satisfaction within the optimum delivery time.
  • With the help of AI solutions, certain aspects, such as biometric indicators, fitness tracking, diet tracking, mental well-being, and genomic screening can be tracked in real-time. This data will be aggregated and fed to the analytics, which offers insights to make improved decisions for the future course of actions.
  • Smart wearables also play a vital role in the transformation of the current healthcare industry. The awareness among consumers is also increasing regarding wearables, many consumers today believe that wearing a smart device, which monitors their vitals, will lead to increase in the average life expectancy.

North America Occupies the Largest Market Share
