Many people have rung in New Year with the mission to improve their overall health and lifestyle, which often includes weight loss. New research suggests AI (artificial intelligence) can help with chronic care and weight loss.
For instance, AI can help healthcare providers optimize treatment plans by assessing the efficacy of different interventions and offering suggestions for changes based on individual responses. Ultimately, this could reduce the chance of repercussions connected to chronic conditions.
GlobalData points to one example: the virtual program that Welldoc provides to people with type 2 diabetes. The results are impressive too. More than 77% of participants had a substantial 4.8% decrease in their baseline body weight. Improvements in systolic blood pressure were also statistically significant, which could lead to lower cardiovascular risk.
Here is how this can help in healthcare:
- Provide a comprehensive framework for guiding individuals through the various aspects of their chronic diseases.
- Scaling care and increasing clinician efficiency.
- Reducing escalating medical expenses.
Looking to the future, we will continue to see a rise in innovation in healthcare, in an effort to both improve patient care and improve how the healthcare industry provides care in a more efficient manner.
