From century to century people have been enhancing their medical knowledge non-stop. All the efforts input and the time spent on medical research aimed at making the human life span longer. We have seen breakthroughs in medicine and the evolution of treatment. But, progress has no limits.

Today, we live in a swirl of technological advancements. Software development is disrupting the global market and changing industries even more. And, Healthcare is not an exception. The most common technology used to develop healthcare solutions now is Artificial Intelligence.

Statista predicts that the world’s market size for artificial intelligence in healthcare will be up to $28 billion by 2025. That’s a significant number, indeed. Thus, what are the challenges AI has already overcome? And, what are still there to conquer?

How did AI change healthcare provision at present?

AI has vast potential. It can recognize objects, faces, speech, and handwriting. It can process images, natural language, produce chatbots and translations. With AI’s help, we can get the most accurate spam filtering. Everything our brain is incapable of doing in mere seconds is an easy task for AI. But, how does it work for medical software?

Predicting to save lives

Using algorithms and machine learning models, medical workers can predict diseases. For example, if there were cases of cancer in your family, you can find out if you’re in the risk group. AI will analyze your family history of illnesses and your medical health records. And, based on the analysis results, you will get your risk percentage.

The algorithm can predict anything. From whether you will have a heart condition in the future to the course of your illness. Or, even, alert doctors if your treatment does not give any results. Think, how many diseases can be prevented? How many lives can be saved due to AI technology? The answer is - thousands.

Eliminating medical errors

Unfortunately, medical errors are the most common causes of human death. According to WHO,  medical errors have affected 23% of Europeans. As many as 18% of patients have faced a serious medical error during their hospital stay. And, 11% have been maltreated with a medication prescription that was not competent or necessary in their case. The fact is that about 72% of medical errors are preventable. And, Artificial Intelligence medical software development is the best means.

Without a doubt, AI can help in keeping and analyzing patient health records. AI will notify patients and doctors about patient conditions, and pills to take. What's more, there will be info on whether the pills have a positive effect. Or a negative one. AI can track the progress of a condition due to tracking patient vitals. It will spot the slightest change for the worse. And give an opportunity to prevent diabetes, obesity, mental illnesses, and more.

Guiding patients with their health conditions

The past two years have seen what it was like to be deprived of medical care due to Covid-19 lockdowns. AI and its smart chatbots became a helpful hand in receiving doctor's consultations. Whenever a patient needed help, the chatbot asked him/her all the necessary questions. And, then, directed to the appropriate doctor. This scheme saved valuable patient time and enhanced patient medical experience.

Also, it became a trend to have a wearable (or any other device) with built-in AI solutions. These wearables (other devices) are the first steps towards a better healthcare provision. Mainly, because they track patient conditions automatically. AI analyzes the indexes on a device and shows charts with your current health condition.

Tracking vitals allows spotting patterns of health deterioration and proposing a corresponding treatment. And, this is also a way of patient guidance. For instance, we can track our sleep, diet, high blood pressure, tachycardia, bradycardia. Nowadays, it is also possible to track your stress level and level of oxygen in your blood. These can exclude anxiety and lung diseases.

What AI attempts to challenge in Healthcare ahead?

There are a few things that AI considers right now. The main aim is to enhance the AI-powered services of today. For instance, the custom medical software development for connected medical devices. The more devices are connected, the better AI deciphers patterns and makes predictions.

Also, AI-driven mhealth apps are becoming more user-centric and personalized. It is a good opportunity to help doctors make healthcare accessible for all.  Especially, when there is a shortage of qualified medical workers in the world.

What's more, software engineers implement on-demand healthcare solutions for medical real-life practices. And these are built using AI technologies as well.


How can AI challenge the world’s healthcare? In many brilliant ways via healthcare solutions. It makes healthcare accessible, innovative, and convenient. It allows tracking patterns and reacting to health deterioration immediately. It ensures you are receiving the right treatment. AI helps you get to know your chances of getting seriously ill and prevents illnesses. Everything is done via processing vitals, sleep patterns, dieting, sports activities. And many more health-related factors.

So, AI challenges unexpected health incidents, medical errors and, sudden deaths. If a condition can be prevented and lives can be saved - AI is the top technology that will carry out this mission.
