How Artificial Intelligence Can Help With Efficiency in Healthcare
AI wouldn’t remove the doctor from the diagnosis completely, Li says. Some diagnoses are extremely complicated, but others can be labor-intensive and repetitive—and an AI can shoulder that latter work, freeing up physicians to handle the more complex tasks.
Another concern is being able to explain what the machine learning model has learned. The process of machine learning can be difficult to explain, and experts on the healthcare side might be confused by the conclusions the AI comes up with.
The potential benefits of AI extend beyond helping with efficiency and freeing humans from labor-intensive analysis, Li says; it could also help with the spread of expertise across the industry.
At the end of the day, the concept of using AI in healthcare is meant to expand how patients receive care rather than take away from the value of human expertise.
