In the previous article, you saw the various pain points that are impeding the global healthcare industry from functioning optimally. Doctors Michael and Ben, had this in mind when they decided to get the Aimedis team together. With experts and advisors from healthcare technology and blockchain, Aimedis conceptualised the dream of integrating the healthcare system globally.
Role of AI in the Global healthcare industry
Due to its sheer size and spread, it is very difficult to integrate the healthcare industry under one roof. There are too many variables. However, with a technologically aware patient and a forward-looking Hospital chain, the interactions become a bit easier.
Add to this equation the most organised members – pharmaceuticals and insurance, and suddenly, the situation is a lot less chaotic. Using AI and deep learning, Aimedis can add immense value to each of the stakeholders – patients, doctors, hospitals, Pharmaceuticals, Insurance companies (payers), and caregivers.
Let us have a look.
For the patient
As discussed in the earlier article, the pain points for a patient are a lack of access to credible information, delay in interacting with a doctor, and a lack of support group. In addition, there is little to no control over the data generated throughout the patient’s journey through the healthcare system.
Aimedis has solutions for this and much more! Patients can get credible information about their condition through a meticulously curated database collated from credible publications. One can e-visit a doctor through our platform using telemedicine. If one wishes to undergo a medical/surgical treatment abroad, we can help you do that using our chain of partner hospitals.
This covers the physical aspect of an illness. However, using our platform, one can interact with patients who are suffering from a similar illness and form a support group. A patient can interact with others under complete anonymity. And if he so chooses, he can share his data with Pharmaceutical companies that will lead to an advancement of research, and he can earn some tokens by doing so.
For the doctor
It is tough to see all the data pertaining to the health of the patient at one place. There are numerous apps that are not standardised. In addition, he can only see a limited set of patients in the hospital.
Luckily, using our platform, the doctor can access all the information at one place. He can also access medical history of the patient without going through tonnes of paperwork. And if he chooses to, he can consult with the patient remotely, saving his time for other patients. He can also see international patients using our remote consulting feature.
For the Pharma companies
Recruiting patients for a trial is an onerous task. It takes a lot of time doing so, delaying the trial by months. In addition, there is no accurate capture of the drugs administered and the results due to a limited follow-up.
Aimedis, using the blockchain, can make this information available to the pharma companies. This ensures that the overall lead time is reduced and new medicines become available to the patients sooner.
Similarly, for the insurance companies,
Aimedis makes the data available to reduce frauds, saving resources tracking the claims. This also reduces the time for reimbursement and it is a win-win for both the patient and the payer.
Aimedis is making it possible
We are living in interesting times when smart medicine is not a distant future but an actual reality. We are already using a lot of gadgets – fitness trackers, smart scales, sleep trackers, nutrition trackers, apps tracking our daily activities. Aimedis’ vision of integrating all of it and making sense of the data for the betterment of medicine is already becoming a reality.
