Artificial intelligence makes the diagnosis more real? – The New Indian Express

Express Message Service

HYDERABAD: As more wearable tech like Fitbits, smartwatches, and wearable monitors become more popular, doctors seem to be the happiest. Internet of Things (IoT) devices offer healthcare professionals and patients new and accurate ways to monitor their vital signs.

dr Welcoming the change, Namrata Rupani, Founder and CEO of Capture Life Dental Care, Banjara Hills says, “One of the best healthcare IoT applications is remote patient monitoring, which can automatically capture health measurements from patients who are not in a healthcare institution , eliminating the need for patients to travel or collect it themselves. An IoT gadget today helps send patient data to a software application that both doctors and patients can access.

For example, IoT sensors on patients could alert doctors when their heart rate is low. However, these have both advantages and problems. Sudheer Reddy Udumula, Founder of Wishealth Lifestyle Homeo Clinics, Ameerpet, says artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things are helping to provide accurate diagnosis. “Statistical and empirical data contribute to better treatment and prescribing, and enable physicians around the world to map and use these findings generations later. Robotic scanning and surgery have brought out the beauty of technical rigor and clarity.” However, he adds, doctors need to learn to adapt and stay current with the technology.

“The recent cases of people finding low oxygen levels or other data related to lifestyle diseases on their smartwatches and proactively rushing to the doctor have restored our confidence in such devices. They help non-professionals track their bodies without major surgery and doctor visits, which is welcome,” he adds.

Krishna Veer Singh, co-founder of Lissun, a mental wellbeing app, says: “Mental health is more important than most of us realize. During the pandemic, the mental health issue has highlighted the importance of digital healthcare as a major step in bridging the mental health gap. Technology makes therapies and other psychological tools available to you anytime, anywhere. With technology, mental health apps are like your personal pocket assistant. They help close the mental health gap and make mental health solutions more accessible to all. With a team of experts and rich, informative content, apps like ours are a mini health center on the web.”

He adds that psychological tools such as journaling, concept and tracking flashcards, meditations, creative visualizations, breathing techniques, psychological assessments, etc. are available in such apps, making remote consultations more effective.
