While the healthcare sector is swiftly adopting new-age techs such as the AI (Artificial Intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things) to enhance outcomes and access particularly in the rural regions, firms must make sure that the tech acts with transparency and responsibility, claims experts.
In late years, the world has witnessed IoT acceptance in governance, education, and financial services. The tech has also allowed doctors interact with and see patients in distant telemedicine hubs with the medical data and case history transmitted automatically for analysis to the doctor.
“The world has an acute shortfall of doctors which affects both the reach and quality of healthcare services in urban and rural hubs,” claimed Managing Director at Accenture for health and public service, John Samuel, to the media in an interview.
“A digital platform fueled by enhanced digital techs can allow unremitting remote patient reporting and monitoring, letting hospitals to expand care to additional people, and lower the stress on healthcare infrastructure,” claimed Samuel.
Speaking of IoT, when we first heard about Android Things service by Google in 2016, the thought was that it can convey extra intelligent abilities to all types of devices. On the other hand, in the years since AI assistants such as Google Assistant have shifted smarts and control to the cloud, while the smartest machines in your home are still only displays and speakers. Now Google has declared that it is “re-aiming” Android Things on those 2 kinds of machines.
The media got a glance at Google Assistant Connect at the time of CES, which demos how the AI service can connect up with something as easy as an e-ink display or button, with no heavy lifting by Android needed. Obviously that is where the firm’s aim is now, even though with the firm’s own Home Hub going around Android Things for a Chromecast-akin configuration after executing the firm’s Fuchsia software during design.
