Uses of AI in Patient Centric Care

Health care segment is experiencing an evolution from the age old institutional driven health care (paid service) to result oriented health care (performance based fee). Care providers are rewarded for raising the bar for care standards and for showcasing indicative service objectives. This method typically assesses provider performance by probing key activities that lead to better patient results and patient contentment.

There are breaches in the age-old medical practice that are motivating these changes: Generally health decisions are taken by health specialists, keeping patients passive and not actively involved in taking the decision. Treatment costs are skyrocketing with a lapse in the delivered value. Unnecessary tests and treatments are being subjected on patients; and erroneously they get wrong treatment.

The essence of patient centric care revolves around the three ‘P’s – patient care synchronization, patient reach to healthcare and patient adopting technology. Patient centric care is expected to take into account the patient’s expectations, desires, beliefs, values, lifestyles, insurance, demographics, family and social scenarios and future approaches in life. Incorporating all these factors into the patient’s care delivers a highly personalized, holistic, respectful and collaborative methodology to medical practice across the bionetwork.

Artificial Intelligence can help avert many of these situations. AI can support and motivate more optimal practices. Large amounts of digital data leveraged from various connected sources such as trials, devices, training, research, patient data and best practices can help strengthen health care professionals to take well informed day-to-day decisions. By tapping into these cross functional skills they can bring forth a noteworthy change by converting old care practices to result oriented health care.

Artificial Intelligence is creating a path to show patients and health care providers to use a strategic approach towards patient centric precaution and prevention rather than administering reactive treatment methods once the patient undergoes an issue. This ensures that patients have sufficient access to health care to avert sudden health quandaries in future.

AI is becoming a game changer for supporting clinical decisions. Productivity gains to the tune of 20% are expected. The companies engrossed in the health care sphere, including pharma companies, OEM medical devices and insurers, who do not latch on to delivering patient centric care will become susceptible to compliance risk, brand erosion, patient attrition and loss of revenue through decrease in insurer reimbursements.

AI enriched EHR technology will help clinical labs to decipher data swiftly, prepare medical and treatment predictions and predictive analytics to help to make plausible decisions and better cost efficient coordinated care. AI will also help pharmacy owners for becoming more efficient with a seamless workflow between health care resources.

AI can create better patient reach, engagement, experience, and virtual house calls by medical stores, pharmacies and other healthcare services.

AI meets the consumer access demand by encouraging medication adherence and preventative care; offering a lesser-cost, instantly accessible care option, especially in villages and rural areas or for those who are hep busy. It also supports the elderly and physically-challenged to get regular healthcare services without moving from their homes.

Most health care professionals think that adding health care technology will help patients to get better access care and enhanced positive experience. Potential benefits may include management of symptoms, better wellness guidance, nutrition and fitness support, motivation to achieve health goals, friends and family support, better reach to care facilities, and more personalized consultations and impactful treatments. AI technology has enabled patients to use a health app for tracking their overall health including weight and nutrition levels.

Embracing AI models will allow providers to shift their focus from responding to health issues within the clinic towards serving patient needs when, where how and from whom they needed it.

AI is integrating emerging smart technology with normally used medical devices for improving patient health care. Smart applications are helping to monitor, alert, forecast behaviour and share patients’ info within their family, friends and health care providers.

Recently, the debut of an AI “smart pill” gut imaging digital medicine which offers the facility to monitor the behaviour and physiology of patients receiving care for particular medical conditions. This pill will enable health care devices to know when the pill was ingested by the patient by sending a wireless message through its edible electronic sensors.

As AI health care technology continues to concentrate on patient engagement and empowerment, it is likely to be a game changer for the health care sector, driving enhanced access and treatment and increased coordination and excellence of care, eventually leading to better management and cost efficiency in our current healthcare system.
