#AI in Healthcare by @deveshrajadhyax



There are some subjects that invoke sharp and contrasting emotions in the society. In present day India, the GST tops the list of such things that are considered boon by some and curse by others. New technology usually does this to people. The steam engine, the telephone and the computer all have been greeted both as the savior and the nemesis of the mankind.

Understanding the Medical Diagnosis processes, to build an AI based solution by @msharmas



Human Intelligence

is The ability to adapt one's behavior to fit new circumstances.


In Psychology, human intelligence is not regarded as a single ability or cognitive process but rather as an “array” of separate components. Research in building AI systems has focused on the following components of intelligence: [1]
  • learning,
  • reasoning,
  • problem-solving,
  • perception, and
  • Language-understanding
These components of human intelligence are also utilized during diagnosing a patient and defining the treatment plan and protocol for the patient.

Experts predict that by 2050, there is a 50% probability that AIs which will match the intelligence of an average adult human. It is not a long wait, isn’t it?


Last week, my husband and I finally sat down to plan our summer vacation. After spending two full hours on 10 different tour websites, we ended up being completely overwhelmed by the options; all-inclusive vs half-board, city vs seaside or sea vs land.

House MD vs Doctor #AI- Who will turn out to be the better by @RoshiniBR


House MD vs Doctor AI- Who will turn out to be the better diagnostician?

Do a google search for “all-inclusive beach holiday” and all you see for the next weeks are advertisements for all-inclusive holidays following the virtual you. Google knows you better than your family or friends- creepy but true! Whether or not we realize it, we have made the decision to donate our data to the virtual world.

Can we put our data to better use – to improve healthcare on a scale unimaginable a decade or two ago?

Benefits of an AI-Based Patient Appointments service for Hospitals by @msharmas


One of the areas where AI can be implemented in the Hospital with high volume of transactions, is the Appointments Scheduling of Patients. On any given day, there are a finite number of slots available for a doctor, e.g. 10 min or 30 min slots, depending on whether its a first visit or a follow up visit. In most hospitals, Routine patients are scheduled in advance and some patients are scheduled based on an urgency, to the physician schedule.  [Denton et al - 8]
A typical workflow for booking an appointment can go like this:

1. Patient calls (or visits) the hospital, and speaks to the person at the reception, at a specific department
2. The person looks up the available time slots, that a doctor is free and available in the clinic
3. Consults with the Patient on the best time possible for her appointment and then schedules the appointment

Zen Clinicals: An Activity & Workflow based solution (1 of 3)



Part 1 of 3:
Recently, during the Gartner Symposium, it was predicted that cognitve platforms would take over a lot of activities. Keeping this future at the back of our minds, its important for the EHRs of today to metamorphosize to the Cognitive Computing platforms of tomorrow, and fast.

With social media, predictive and bigdata analytics become more central to the discussions; the current EHR systems are woefully lagging behind in the ability to catchup with the technology of today. Newer EHRs or healthcare based platforms too are lagging behind in the adoption of these technologies. Most often have observed the similar functionality being rolled out on newer technology.

In most cases I have found the solutions to be non-workflow, i.e., non-BPM, enabled solutions that have the inability to adapt to a new healthcare scenario faced by the solution in the next implementation. With the advent of the Software as a service platforms and the proliferation of the cloud based services in other industries, healthcare solutions have generally gone for the traditional (non-BPM based) approach to delivering a solution. 

So, One needs to then ask, "What should the future of a patient health record (PHR) or the electronic health record look like?" 

Will we really see the advent of SMART solutions in healthcare, or are the changes to difficult too incorporate into the solution because that's how the solutions had been developed?

In this series I present some thoughts on what should the solutions of today morph into to meet the needs of the users and hopefully make it more user-friendly in the process.

And to develop the solution, Zen Clinicals (this is a fictitious name of a solution any resemblance is purely a coincidence), we need to answer a few questions upfront: 
  • who do you build it for? 
  • Who are the actors? 
  • And what do they need? 
  • What are their activities? 
  • What do they do daily?

“User Experience strategy lies at the intersection of UX design and business strategy. It is practice that, when done empirically, provides a much better chance of successful digital product than just crossing your fingers, designing some wireframes, and then writing a bunch of code”
