Artificial intelligence (AI) is mandatory to enable proper diagnosis & treatment and optimal allocation of resources.
Management of preventive medicine requires the existence of artificial intelligence at the technological level. The amount of information needed for processing is enormous. The data comes from various sources and throughout life, from birth to death. A smart medical card, with biometric security, centralizes all the medical and administrative information of all citizens necessary for the efficient management of health systems.
Allocating the resources of medical services is currently inefficient, causing an increase in the price of medical services to the citizen!
- How often do encounters with MD end with just paperwork? Like most medical office services have moved to online applications, many medical services that do not involve physical therapy will move to the cloud.
- The shortage of doctors and medical staff is not accidental. It results from a sharp rise in chronic morbidity worldwide, the need for advanced and expensive equipment that requires training, and the creation of a strong guild of the medical industry that takes care not to train more doctors. The result is the declining availability of medical services and an increase in their price.
Although using dedicated medical software, a human doctor cannot analyze all the required information within a few minutes.
- Recent symptoms.
- Patient history & lifestyle.
- Extended family history. (Genetic diseases)
- The patient's current medications and their counter-indications.
- All diagnostic tests:
- Blood pressure, pulse, body temperature.
- All types of blood & urine tests. (Including genetic tests.)
- Invasive & non-invasive tests.
- Imaging tests. (Ultrasound, CT, MRI.)
- Qi energy life-force readings – are not prominent in conventional medicine. (But helpful)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a must to put various pieces of data into perspective.
Medical knowledge is highly detailed and rapidly growing, making using artificial intelligence inevitable. A human doctor cannot effectively analyze so much information.
The main benefits of using artificial intelligence in medicine:
- Improved diagnoses. (With fewer false diagnoses.)
- Better allocation of resources.
- Shorter queues.
- Minimization of health expenses.
The outcome >> Improved satisfaction of the general population.
The vision for 10-20 years from now in developed countries.
- Artificial intelligence will replace many duties now performed by medical personnel and many time-consuming clerical tasks.
- Concentrating all medical data in one enormous databank will demand legislative changes in most countries that will involve regulatory updates and extreme security technology.
Futuristic Scenario for a non-emergency patient. (This is not science fiction!)
- The patient enters the medical application installed on a smartphone or laptop computer. Due to security reasons, all authentication will be double biometric. (Retina scan + fingerprint scan or some other combination like a voice recognition + fingerprint scan)
- The patient selects the services needed from the choices offered on the medical application. (The application accepts voice commands or typed queries.)
- The application asks the patient to give a detailed description of all symptoms (blood pressure, pulse, body temperature, etc. (If needed.)
- Advanced artificial intelligence software then analyzes all the data and determines whether:
- The patient's usual prescriptions will be sent to a smartphone or e-mail.
- Prescription delivery will be routinely available.
- Suppose the analysis shows a need for further investigation and more lab tests. In that case, a request to the relevant clinic will be sent to the patient and timetables for making appointments.
- All test results are analyzed by artificial intelligence tools and are stored in the databank.
- Severe or complicated cases are sent to a human doctor for further analysis, a second opinion, or medical intervention beyond artificial intelligence.
- Robots will do very accurate and delicate surgery under human guidance. (Already available in the present.)
An international biometric epidemic card is in demand, especially for international traffic.
A biometric medical passport will save unnecessary bureaucracy and many resources. The difficulty is not technological but mainly controlling information and leading the international project.
- Returning to an international flight and traffic routine will require different preparation than the existing one. There are quite a few bureaucracies in many countries around the whole issue of global transportation: PCR tests, serological tests, isolation, etc. Under the auspices of the World Health Organization, establishing a worldwide database is requested.
- Biometric security will enable the transfer of information between the governments of the world countries through a smart card that includes all the required information in a uniform format, including a detailed history and vital personal and medical details. The card may be used in the future for additional purposes, most notably natural disasters.
