Clinicians are often overworked, and hospitals are understaffed. Various studies estimate a diagnosis error rate of 10 – 15% which has a huge impact on those patients and the providers. Early diagnosis of critical conditions like Sepsis or Intracranial Hemorrhage has a significant effect on patient outcomes.
AI based decision support and diagnosis can help clinicians make better decisions by incorporating more data into the decision-making process and by learning patterns that are outside the clinicians’ purview. With mobile devices integrated into the clinical workflow, AI-based decision support helps doctors and nurses by providing a second opinion or by pointing out information they may have missed. These additional insights help the clinician make a more informed decision and can actual save time, expense and patient discomfort by preventing unnecessary tests.
