Not Science Fiction anymore — the emergence of AI and Robotics in Healthcare
Since the invention of computers and machines, their ability to perform various tasks have grown exponentially through the years. Machines are best at digesting massive amounts of data and picking out patterns that the human brain cannot fathom. Artificial Intelligence (AI) pursues in creating machines and systems that are ultimately more intelligent that humans itself. It is based on the principle that human intelligence can be elucidated in such a way that a machine mimics and executes functions, from the most simple to the most complex.

In Healthcare, data is crucial and thus digitization of records may serve as a powerful research warehouse for clinical data. The potential for AI is getting increasingly sophisticated at a bare minimum cost with researchers and clinicians looking at the technology to aid in training, research, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and care. The use of AI in healthcare today looks at one vital vision: treating patients is both art and science; consequently making healthcare more efficient for patients due to its improving accuracy, precise diagnosis, remote treatment and augmentation of human abilities like supporting mental health to daily tasks. The greater adoption of Artificial Intelligence, robotics and automation will be a boon for businesses especially in the healthcare industry with an impactful global change.

Top nations like Germany, Singapore and South Korea have adopted AI and robotics into the healthcare sector. Korea is the leading nation for AI adoption followed by Singapore, China and Taiwan according to an ITIF report. Healthcare systems around the world, notably the UK's National Health Service, have already engaged the use of AI health assistant programs to modify the clinical process with the help of applications and programs to give their patients information as well as facilitate meetings with clinicians. An Indian software company Sigtuple, created an AI- based telepathology system that automates their smart microscopes to take pictures and upload on cloud. This allows efficiency among pathologists for their diagnosis. Recently, the US market has seen higher adoption of AI to decrease the cost of care and improve the outcomes, which was driven by regulatory push for value- based healthcare. This forced providers to adopt EHR (Electronic Health Records) platforms to leverage medical data efficiently. Within two years, it is expected that 35% of healthcare organizations will adopt AI to improve their patient experience.

The healthcare sector in Saudi Arabia is one of the main focuses of the Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Program 2020. Saudi Arabia is currently seeking to be a global leader in the application of technology related to AI and has highest efficiency in the healthcare industry. With a physician patient ration of 2.57/1000,Artificial Intelligence will allow Saudi Arabia's focus on digital healthcare innovations for better accuracy and better patient outcomes. 46% jobs in Saudi Arabia are susceptible to automation and with the help of AI and robotics the increase for employment opportunities for students as well as doctors arises. 55% of the respondents of the doctors at Saudi Arabia are in willingness to adopt to AI and Robotics in their healthcare system.

Considering above 30% of the population is over the age of 50 accounting to about 10 Million people, AI could bridge the gap between number of patients' requiring treatment and available qualified specialists. AI could aid in early detection and diagnosis putting the emphasis on treating patients who are more in need.

In light of these rapid developments, Value Based Healthcare Summit 2019 offers a premier platform to engage in knowledge sharing and discuss goals, visions, trends and challenges in making healthcare services smarter, more affordable and accessible in the era of digital transformation. Leading regional and international industry experts will deliver insightful presentations on pertinent topics through keynote presentations and interactive panel discussions.

Come and watch the best minds in the Healthcare sector from across the pan-Saudi region, as well as the rest of the world, convene on a single platform on September 18th, 2019 in Jeddah, KSA.

Registrations are open at www.valuebasedhealth.org. Ensure your participation for the ultimate knowledge-sharing conference at the earliest.
