What doctor? Why AI and robotics will define New Health. Report by pwc. Updated June 2017.

Why AI and robotics will define New Health

Will artificial intelligence and robotics in medicine replace the human clinician? Not yet, but healthcare is changing and these advanced technologies have the potential to make care better, faster and more accessible for all. PWC surveyed over 12,000 people from 12 countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa to see if the public is willing to embrace that change.

We are entering a new era of health – New Health

Modern health systems can treat and cure more diseases than ever before. New technology is bringing innovation to old treatments. Yet significant quality, access and cost issues remain and our health systems are becoming increasingly unsustainable.  The emergence and increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will have a significant impact on healthcare systems around the world. How will AI and robotics define New Health?

No longer science fiction, AI and robotics are transforming healthcare

AI is getting increasingly sophisticated at doing what humans do, but more efficiently, more quickly and at a lower cost. The potential for both AI and robotics in healthcare is vast. Just like in our every-day lives, AI and robotics are increasingly a part of our healthcare eco-system.

The report highlighs eight ways that showcase how this transformation is currently underway:

  1. Keeping well
  2. Early detection
  3. Diagnosis
  4. Decision making
  5. Treatment
  6. End of Life Care
  7. Research
  8. Training
