Artificial Intelligence in the Healthcare System

Technological advances over the years in the healthcare system has positively contributed to the saving of patients and generally improving the quality of healthcare services provided by the physicians and other medical practitioners. According to Yu (2018), Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the forefront of technological innovations in the health care system. This application allows for the fast development of medical solutions, identification of medical problems, and prediction of future morbidities (Yu, 2018). Some individuals believe that these technological advances are beneficial to the systems. On the other hand, other researchers posit that these advancements are risky, and may thus, worsen the quality of healthcare and endanger the lives of both healthcare providers and patients. The purpose of this essay is to discuss Artificial Intelligence and its application to revolutionise different healthcare aspects, including its advantages and risks.

According to Yu (2018), there are four high-priority areas where the use of AI would be successful while using minimal resources. The first opportunity is AI-enabled population health. Duncan (2018) explains that this involves evaluating existing problems and providing corresponding solutions regarding population health information. For example, health surveillance, prediction of possible medical issues, and intervention targeting to combat the medical problem. Wright (2020) highlights that another opportunity………………………………
