Posted on Jim Price’s company blog is a downloadable white-paper that explores the role of automation in healthcare.

As discussed in Issue One, the future of medicine will be fundamentally reshaped by a fusion of three forces: Genetics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation. The future of interventional and surgical capabilities has not been widely discussed. Demand for these services has risen dramatically in recent years and is forecast to increase significantly in the coming decades. As a result, demand is quickly overtaking supply in surgical and procedural services; however, current payment systems cannot support the labor intensive model. AI, advanced robotics, 5G Internet, 3D printing, miniaturization, and nano technology will eventually fuse together to dramatically automate surgical and procedural services, alleviating the manpower shortage.

 

Included in this paper are:

  • FDA approved AI applications
  • Reimagining the future of surgery
  • The performance of a pre-op robot
