Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a recent advancement in technology that uses intelligent machine learning (ML) algorithms and natural language processing (NLP) to make a machine think and act like a human, predict and respond to actions based on available data. Large amounts of data are getting generated every day in almost all industries. AI helps realize the value of scattered, unused, unattended data by comparing the data patterns (similarities and differences) and turning them into meaningful, valuable information. Basically, it supports humans by interpreting the data. Though AI finds its application in all the industries these days, its role in healthcare is crucial since it helps providers deliver the best care a patient needs. AI helps healthcare providers and payers by automating tedious manual processes, which requires minimum to no human intervention. From appointment scheduling using chatbots or Conversational AI, clinical documentation, and administrative workflow to disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention processes, image recognition, drug research, its applications produce error-free reports with minimal investment. AI-based or AI-assisted applications are widely being used in the healthcare industry.
