A recent report by Juniper Research has stated that not only will AI transform and shape the role in which digitisation will play within healthcare sector, the total spending on CAD (computer aided diagnosis) systems will reach $800.7 million by 2022.

It also adds that “by 2022, 28.4 million chronic disease scans will also be fed into first-line CAD systems annually.”

Large volumes of data routinely inputted into healthcare systems and Electronic Health Records (EHRs) will ultimately be harnessed in a bid to improve and provide exceptional patient centered care, as well as create an element of convenience with patients through implementing online booking systems, and the ability to speak to a medical professional, anytime, anywhere.

The implementation of CAD systems will also provide the ability to look at certain trends within a number of chronic conditions through the use of diagnostics, and consequently lower costs across the board and enable acute healthcare settings to provide higher quality treatment options.

Nonetheless, with recent worldwide cyber-security attacks, such as the WannaCry attack involving the National Health Service in the United Kingdom, the need for IT infrastructures and cloud systems remains paramount within any risk analysis taken.

Current healthcare regulations under the European Union are consequently being revised, as well as the General Data Protection Regulation, which will become more specific and provide a more robust set of processes which businesses will need to follow.
