AI-Augmented Patient Care: Pros and Cons

AI-Augmented Patient Care: Pros and Cons

In healthcare, artificial intelligence (AI) has shown promise in both clinical and administrative applications. Increasing use of AI algorithms and tools, therefore, could provide a wide range of benefits particularly in improving patient care, reducing burden on providers and increasing resource efficiency at hospitals, says a new report.

Moreover, healthcare AI technology is also poised to help augment patient care outside traditional clinical settings. AI-enabled tools can also be deployed for health monitoring, intervention and promoting overall well-being beyond the walls of the hospital and clinic (i.e. the home), according to the report Artificial Intelligence in Health Care: Benefits and Challenges of Technologies to Augment Patient Care issued jointly by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and National Academy of Medicine (NAM).
