Dr. Catherine Jones explores how AI technology can support clinicians and radiologists and improve patient outcomes, the current barriers to adoption, and why she hopes the technology will become a staple in the hospitals of the future.
Dr. Catherine Jones is a thoracic radiologist and chest lead at annalise.ai, developing artificial intelligence tools to assist radiologists and other clinicians.
Imagine a healthcare system where innovation is embraced, technology integration is driven by patient outcomes, and clinician workflow is streamlined and efficient. Patient data is easily accessible, and collaboration with global colleagues to inform patient care is a regular daily occurrence. This future is an exciting prospect that is increasingly possible with the advances in artificial intelligence (AI) over the last decade.
Artificial intelligence and other innovations like augmented reality (AR), 3D printing, robotics and connected devices are just some of the technologies that will soon form part of standard care across many medical specialties. From improving training programmes to assisting surgery, ensuring rapid diagnostics, to distributing bed linen, these technologies will significantly facilitate the provision of quality care. Many of these technologies may sound familiar because many of them already exist to some extent.
