Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Can Lead to Fewer Medical Errors

October 24, 2017 - 1 minute read

In 2016 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that medical errors and
misdiagnosis were the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States[1]. This is an alarming fact that healthcare and technology researchers are aiming to change.

Enter Artificial Intelligence (AI), the use of computer and technology systems to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence. In the healthcare world, AI is used to comb through patient data. Technology systems and the algorithms they run can scrub massive amounts of data in a more accurate and efficient manner than when reviewed by human scientists or medical professionals— unveiling patterns in diagnosis, suggesting treatment plans for similar cases, and collecting data to enhance public health and safety. That may translate to better and more accurate diagnosis.

TupeloLife is focused on precision, personalization, and prevention. The use of AI in healthcare impacts each of these parts– a more precise outlook on patient lifestyle, environment, and medication management data, a personalized treatment plan, and remote patient monitoring to prevent future health-related problems. Our innovative software, hardware, apps, devices, and services give you peace-of-mind to live a vibrant and empowered life.
