Despite the trend towards Digitalized Healthcare, there are many healthcare systems dependent upon paper records. This often results in issues with record retrieval and security. This is where DeepMind, Google’s artificial intelligence subsidiary, is stepping in for a pilot project with a hospital under the British National Health Service (NHS).
This platform aims to simplify the process of sharing patient data by sharing accurate information about the patient’s medical condition. Moreover, alerts will be provided to staff when patient’s results suggest a high risk, along with data and recommendations on the next course of action.
The platform aims to reduce staff response time to deliver timely treatment, which could in turn, save lives.
Will real-time alerts from digitalized healthcare save lives?
