Hospitals have always been a place of innovation. From the first medical breakthroughs to new technologies, hospitals are constantly changing and adapting to meet today’s needs. As a result, doctors need better tools, more efficient systems, and faster access to information to provide quality care for their patients. This blog post will explore some of the most innovative technological advances in hospitals that are making healthcare more efficient than ever before.
The Artificial Intelligence Intrusive Surgery Machines
Artificial Intelligence has been making its way into the operating room for some time now. These machines make surgeons work smarter, not more complex, and may eventually replace the current surgical team with a single AI-enabled device.
The use of AI in surgery will only grow as these devices become more sophisticated, and physicians across specialties like cardiothoracic surgery, vascular intervention, or even neurological procedures can use them in operations such as deep brain stimulation.
Artificial intelligence will also bring new efficiencies in hospital operations providing data insights that lead to cost savings from reduced wait times. This step will be through better planning capabilities, fewer bed shortages through enhanced inventory management, and lower overhead costs due to decreased staffing needs, among other benefits.
The efficiency increases will also extend to the patients themselves, who will spend more time with their loved ones because of shorter wait times, a better quality of life, and experience less pain due to AI-assisted surgery.
Hospitals are using artificial intelligence to automate various tasks, such as triaging incoming patient charts based on severity. In some cases, AI is even being used to decide what course of treatment will be best for the patient in question.
