The future is here in its truest sense with all the artificial mechanisms going real. As artificial intelligence continues to surprise us with its remarkable progress it is expected that artificial intelligence applications in healthcare will represent a $34 billion market by the year 2025.

AI provides immense benefits to health experts, caretakers and patients. Not only AI can identify complex patterns but it can also make its own algorithms. With everything AI has to offer it is all geared up to transform the healthcare industry.

Around 86% of companies associated with the healthcare sector are using artificial intelligence technology in their products and services, as suggested by a report released by CB Insights in 2016. According to the report, these organizations will spend more than $54 million on utilising artificial intelligence for the betterment of the health industry.

Let’s find out how AI is already transforming the healthcare sector:

1. Virtual nurses

There have been virtual nurses developed and used to monitor a patient’s condition and keep a track of treatment updates and progress. Molly, a digital nurse by Sensely uses machine learning to help in this regard and has emerged as a phenomenal innovation.

2. Carrying out small tasks

Analysing tests, X-Rays, CT scans and data entry takes up a lot of time of health professionals involved in the treatment process. These tasks can be handed over to robots with specialized AI-based functionality to save time and efforts while humans can focus on the more complex parts of the treatments.

3. AI-assisted Medical Diagnoses

There is a lot to discuss on how artificial intelligence is impacting the progress in the medical diagnoses of complicated diseases. John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, England, has developed Ultromics which has proven to be excelling at diagnosing chronic diseases to an extent where even surgeons failed to identify the disease.

Not only this development offers improved accuracy and cost-efficiency, but it also guarantees the diagnostics facility being made available to communities facing a shortage of doctors and surgeons.

4. Automated Workflow Assistance

Keeping and storing a real-time record of reports, test results, drug prescriptions, medical images, and insurance information holds vital importance in the efficiency of health procedures. Not only can AI help in automated scheduling of patient check-ups but it can also assist in managing communications between internal departments and patients.

To sum up, there is a lot of potential in how artificial intelligence can benefit the healthcare sector. There are heavy efforts being made by AI experts around the world on how it can be used to facilitate healthcare stakeholders.

Look at Bon Robotics’ ‘Diana Robot’ which oversees all the routine tasks for the patients with mental and physical disabilities, comes with a built-in AI chat feature, uses face recognition and voice features to interact with the patients and caretakers. This robot will serve as a revolutionary player in making patients’ care easier for the hospitals and individual caretakers.

We have observed robots taking over a huge list of human activities and functions. From managing inventories to assisting doctors in operation theatres, robots are constantly making lives easier for the human race. Now, Bon Robotics is developing a robot named ‘Diana’ that can potentially make the lives of dementia patients much comfortable.

Dementia: Dementia is defined as “a group of symptoms affecting memory, thinking and social abilities severely enough to interfere with your daily life.” The disease is caused by damage to or loss of nerve cells and their connections in the brain and the complications depend on what part of the brain is damaged.

A lot of research and advancement have been carried out on treating dementia and how to minimize the pain and suffering of the victims. The number of people suffering from dementia currently stands at 45 million and is projected to increase to 75 million by 2030, as reported by the World Health Organisation

Diana Robot: With its built-in Artificial Intelligence technology and machine learning, Diana robot will serve as a revolutionary invention developed to interact with humans and to perform their daily functions including but not limited to setting morning routines, appointments and reminders, making voice and video calls, carrying out AI-chat with the humans, and providing assistance with other routine functions.

Relieving stress and anxiety, Individuals suffering from dementia often face stress and anxiety due to a lack of interaction resulting in isolation. Diana robot stays with the person for all the time and keeps them engaged with different activities. Its chat feature allows the person to communicate with the robot as well.

Performing minor daily routine functions, It gets extremely difficult for dementia patients to carry out little tasks on their own. Diana robot takes care of it for them. Using its facial recognition and voice command features, the robot can perform a lot of small tasks such as turning lights and television on and off, making emergency calls, opening doors, etc.

Assisting human caregivers, surprisingly, Diana robot can not only assist the patients suffering from dementia but also the caregivers assigned to them. From casting medication reminders to providing regular updates to the caregivers, Diana robot has proved to be a great assistant in taking care of a dementia patient.

Diana Robot is an invention made by the team working at Bon Robotics. They are constantly evaluating the performance of this robot to ensure maximum benefits it can provide for the social care of patients with different mental and physical disabilities. With more studies being conducted by them, it is becoming quite evident that Social Care Robotics will change the game for the healthcare industry.
