AI HEALTHCARE SECTORS
AI for Medical Schools
Artificial intelligence systems are posed to transform the entire healthcare sector, including medical education. Medical schools, colleges, and universities will all benefit from AI software development that improves admissions and enrollment processes, enhances classroom learning, advances medical research, and offers personalized tutoring. ArtificialIntelligence.health is among the first companies working on AI to make custom software that is more affordable for a broader range of medical schools. The following are just some of the ways AI will be used to improve services and reduce costs and medical colleges and universities.
Improved Course Curricula with AI-Enhanced Medical eLearning
Medical research and the practice of health care advances rapidly. Preplanned syllabi may not be able to capture all the relevant information from which medical students can benefit. AI can be used to source and present the latest peer-reviewed research and high quality medical news from online sources to add to the curriculum to keep students current on a day-by-day basis. By ensuring that the latest information relevant to the course is brought into the classroom, artificial intelligence can help keep students engaged and become familiar with the best sources of medical news and research, helping prepare them for a lifetime of learning through their careers.
Online eLearning courses can also be created to allow for distance learning that will keep many of the personalized aspects of in-class instruction intact. Course material presentations can be adjusted to leverage individual student skills and help strengthen topic areas in which the student is weak. Assignments, quizzes, and tests can be automatically personalized by AI to reinforce topics that are most challenging to each particular student. Virtual tutors can field any questions the learner may have, and offer additional learning materials and support for specific topic areas. Interactions with the virtual tutor can also help shape the subsequent course content the learner views, and the questions they are posed on quizzes and tests. In these ways and more, AI will allow medical colleges and universities to shape online eLearning courses and supplementary lessons to make for more dynamic instruction that leverages the latest developments in medical knowledge and personalizes the education experience to match the needs of each individual.
AI in Medical Research
Artificial intelligence will also empower medical research at colleges and universities. As AI becomes more and more important to the practice of health care, students will increasingly be tasked with assignments that will effectively require the use of artificial intelligence to automate medical research across huge data pools to find information relevant to a particular topic of interest. For example, one student at Duke used medical AI to comb through 38 billion data points captured on invasive procedures performed there to identify predictors of surgical site infections and help design more efficient workflows1. Another student used medical AI to find ways to predict sepsis in hospital patients up to five hours before they met the clinical sepsis definition by finding predictor variables in the electronic health records (EHR)2. Students going into public health will especially benefit from medical AI's capacity to leverage increasingly expansive and complex electronic health records and other medical data. As AI becomes more important to the practice of health care, it will become more essential to each health care workers' medical education.
ArtificialIntelligence.health is dedicated to making medical AI more accessible and affordable for a broader number of medical schools and other healthcare organizations. As a division of DDA, ArtificialIntelligence.health draws from a 25-year history of creating custom interactive medical software for a variety of clients in the healthcare sector, from medical colleges, universities, and academic associations, to pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, individual medical practices, and more.
