Apollo Hospitals discussed increasing role of AI in medical field at World CIO 200 Summit in Ras Al Khaimah
Apollo Hospitals, Asia’s foremost integrated healthcare services provider, highlighted the growing role of artificial intelligence (AI) in the field of medicine during World CIO 200 Summit in Ras Al Khaimah. The world’s largest information technology (IT) and innovation excellence programme was held from December 9 to 10, 2019 at Doubletree by Hilton hotel.
The President of Apollo Hospitals, Dr. Hari Prasad, joined the summit’s roster of keynote speakers specialising in various fields and disciplines. As a veteran healthcare specialist, Dr. Prasad shed light on how AI has been transforming medical care, revolutionising treatment and diagnosis, and averting the spread of diseases in local and global communities.
Dr Hari Prasad said: “AI’s role has never been more imperative than today when all aspects of our daily living are becoming more and more dependent on technologies. The next-generation AI has truly made dramatic changes across industries through the years, including the healthcare field.”
“We at Apollo Hospitals are fully aware of this technology’s positive impact and the World CIO 200 Summit was a venue for us to share some of our AI-driven initiatives. These initiatives are designed to deliver cost-efficient and highly effective healthcare services with better medical outcomes. They are in line with our efforts to help build healthier and safer communities across the world,” added Dr Hari Prasad.
The World CIO 200 Summit gathered under one roof leading CIOs, high-ranking government officials, technology solution providers, investors, and entrepreneurs, among others, from 15 countries across three continents. During the event, the attendees met and networked with their like-minded peers, discussed the future of next-generation technologies, and tackled the innovative approaches to the technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
As one of the high-level participants, Apollo Hospitals showcase somed of its prominent projects, including the AI-powered personalized and preventive healthcare programme called ‘ProHealth.’ It was launched late this year to help combat the rising cases of non-communicable diseases by utilising the advanced personalised health risk assessment (pHRA) technology.
Also, Apollo Hospitals has teamed up with Microsoft India for the AI-powered ‘Cardiovascular Disease Risk Score Application Program Interface (API)’ project. This project is designed to predict the risk of cardio vascular diseases and promote preventive cardiac care.
“These are just some of the initiatives that we showcased during the summit. Apollo has made a lot of progress in AI-focused programmes which can help change the future of the global healthcare industry,” concluded Dr Hari Prasad.
