Sérgio Viegas presented the lecture: “Artificial Intelligence in Cardiology” at the National Symposium on New Technologies in Cardiology at university Promove . It started by bringing basic concepts of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL). He then drew parallels on the technological innovations that enabled AI to grow, such as increased computing power. He also talked about numerous applications of AI in medicine today, health future perspectives and the unmistakable importance of the human element throughout the process. Technology comes to add and not replace. Professionals should make good use of it to empathically provide the best possible health care.
On the 1st and 2nd of October 2019 the 36th Inforuso, the most traditional technology event of Minas Gerais, took place. This year’s theme was “Digital Human”.
Dr. Alexandre Pinto Coelho, ihealthy’s scientific leader, gave a speech on the Knowledge Trails, AI Seminar. The title of the presentation was: “The Impact of AI on the Medical Body: The Doctor’s View”
Other panel presentations were:
“Impacts of Artificial Intelligence on Medicine”, Nivio Ziviani – KUNUMI.
“Artificial Intelligence in Authorization – Unimed-BH Experience”, Cynthia Bicalho and Ezequiel Ribeiro – UNIMED.
This was followed by a very interesting debate on the perspectives and future of medicine and health from the perspective of artificial intelligence, the advantages, benefits, challenges.
According to Eric Topol, in his book “Deep Medicine”, it requires 3 components:
- Ability to deeply understand each individual using all relevant data
- Deep Learning- Big Data and Pattern Recognition
- Deep empathy and connection between doctor and patient
Current health situation is terrible (even in USA):
- Quick consultations (7 to 15 min) = poor quality
- Doctors with burnout
- Too little data to use in decision making
- Focus on disease rather than health and mental
“What´s wrong in healthcare today is that it´s missing care. Doctors don´t really care for patients…” Eric Topol
We wanna change this sad scenario!
Do you know that pain in your right foot that you never treated? Do you remember when it started? No? …
It’s been 3 years … And because you think the pain would improve on its own, you took it without worrying …
You know that problem in the right knee? Remember when it started? It’s been 2 years. Did you think it was old age coming? No, it was a reflection of the unhealed right foot problem.
If you had these records easily, or until your doctor could have access to them in the consultations, imagine how you could facilitate the understanding and recovery of your health.
And the good days? Any records? Happiness, I feel strong, confident … Bad days? Can my problems have any bearing on negative thoughts?
What if, in addition to the records, you could rely on artificial intelligence technology analyzing your health and disease data and suggesting improvements to the day-to-day?
Welcome to the future of real health!
