AI usecases/application areas in healthcare

AI, computer vision and machine learning systems proved that machines are better and faster than humans analyzing big data. Today, organizations have large datasets of patient data and insights about diseases through techniques like Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS). Using AI, healthcare providers can analyze and interpret the available patient data more precisely for early diagnosis and better treatment. Today, it is possible to say whether a person has the chance to get cancer from a selfie using computer vision and machine learning to detect increased bilirubin levels in a person’s sclera, the white part of the eye.

We have identified about a dozen artificial intelligence use case in healthcare industry and structured these use cases around typical process that used in healthcare industry. Our framework is not yet comprehensive but it can still give you insights about the activities and use cases. Also, it is ever improving so please let us know if you have any comments and suggestions.

  1. Great article, Aliriza. I was surprised that you didn’t mention AI-based symptom checkers in the patient care section thou. Is there any reason for this decision?

    We are seeing a slow but relentless shift in the industry towards AI-powered SC with multiple use cases for payors and health systems, among others. FYI, Check this out:


    1. We had put that under “Assisted or automated diagnosis & prescription”, because the way I understand symptom checker essentially diagnoses the patient and potentially suggests remedies. Let me know if I misunderstood your point. Btw, would be happy if you registered mediktor at so we could consider your products&services while working on our content.
