Innovation and Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare




Innovation in Health, Artificial Intelligence, Global Healthcare


This paper examines the transformative impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare, delving into its potential and challenges. It analyses the integration of AI into medical practices, focusing on how it revolutionizes diagnostics, treatment planning, and patient care. AI deployment's ethical and legal implications in healthcare are critically assessed, highlighting the need for robust frameworks to safeguard patient privacy and data security. The paper advocates for interdisciplinary collaboration among healthcare professionals, ethicists, and legal experts to optimize AI's benefits while mitigating risks. It underscores the importance of continual education and policy development to adapt to the evolving landscape of AI in healthcare, aiming for improved patient outcomes and efficient healthcare delivery.
