Every day the world around us is evolving and changing; with these changes being integrated in our lives, artificial intelligence is no exception to this. With this technology on the rise, many different companies and industries are acquiring and utilizing its power for their benefit. One major industry harvesting the resources provided by this technology is the health and wellness, which many aren’t aware of.
In our most recent webinar, we are joined by Ritesh Patel, Chief Digital Officer for Ogilvy Health and Wellness, who provides insights on the technology trends that are likely to impact the health industry in the new year.
Patel discusses the three major areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning being applied to the health industry. He also discusses the recent rise of chatbots within the industry, and how they are used as a means of handling simple mundane activities such as setting up appointments, reminders, etc.
He further explains how ‘telemedicine’ will change the way care is delivered to patients, touching on new innovative ways in which medicine will be delivered to our doors in the near future. Patel also talks about a new up and coming technology that is said to be the ‘savior’ of the healthcare industry. In this session, we get a sneak peak into the future as we deep dive into how AI is set to change the healthcare industry as we know it.
