Furthermore, deep learning technologies, predictive analytics, content analytics, and Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools are enabling care professionals to diagnose patients’ underlying health conditions at an earlier stage. The Covid-19 pandemic positively influenced the demand for AI technologies and unearthed the potential held by these advanced technologies. Healthcare systems widely adopted these technologies in the rapid diagnosis and detection of different virus strains and utilized personalized information in improving the management of the outbreak. AI/ML algorithms were utilized in the diagnosis sector wherein these technologically driven modules were trained with datasets of chest CT images, symptoms, pathological findings, and exposure history to diagnose Covid-19 positive patients rapidly and accurately.
Moreover, the growing shortage of healthcare workforce drove the adoption of AI/ML technologies. Therefore, AI algorithms can be trained to analyze patient health information which further supports care providers in quickly diagnosing the condition and devising an accurate treatment regime. Supportive government initiatives, the rising number of mergers and acquisitions and technological collaborations, and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic had a significant role in boosting the growth of the market and accelerating the adoption rate of AI in healthcare. AI/ML algorithms are being widely implemented in rapid and accurate diagnosis of medical conditions after the initial implementation in the detection of Covid-19 positive patients using personalized patient information and data consolidation.
As per an NCBI study in 2020, AI-based algorithms accurately detected 68% of COVID-19 positive cases in a dataset of twenty-five patients which were diagnosed as negative cases by care professionals. The implementation of AI/ML technologies in enhancing patient care, reducing machine downtime, and minimizing care expenses are some of the driving forces of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare market growth. Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, AI-based technologies witnessed a significant boost in adoption and are set to experience a dramatic growth trajectory. Healthcare functions such as diagnostics, patient management, medication management, claims management, workflow management, integration of machines, and cybersecurity saw a remarkable surge in the integration of AI/ML technologies.
The growing penetration of Artificial Intelligence technologies in healthcare applications led to key market participants focusing on product innovation and technological collaborations to expand their product portfolio and meet the growing demands during the pandemic. For instance, in May 2020, MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab promoted the implementation of AI technologies in research projects studying the health and economic consequences of the pandemic. Similarly, Qventus introduced AI-based patient flow automation systems covering critical resource control, hospitalization duration optimization, Covid-19 scenario planner, and ICU capacity creation in its healthcare facilities.
