Over the past many years, the application and uptake of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has accelerated across technology verticals, and even in daily lives. While AI is not new, the convergence of various advances, including widespread developments in computing power and increasing volumes of data being generated, are leading to a spike in AI. As such, considerable public and private interest, and accompanied investment are currently under exploration.
AI still has seen very modest adoption in healthcare. However, there is a clear urgency and prospects for uptake of AI in healthcare. If managed properly, AI will lead to automation of routine tasks and processes, freeing up the doctors and the scientists to tackle the bigger challenges in healthcare, and focus on patient care.
This report maps the key trends in healthcare, and provides a short-term and long-term view of AI adoption in healthcare.
