This nothing but helps to streamline a good rapport between the patient and the healthcare expert. Such engagements benefit by creating a reliable two-way partnership in which clinicians can learn from families and simultaneously offer them tools to help them better manage their child’s care.
Artificial Intelligence: While the human capacity to evaluate and make conclusions is superior to any other species on the planet, it is still inadequate in terms of the volume of information and data that can be administered quickly. Artificial intelligence has the capability of making this process quicker by numerous degrees and far more resourceful and competent than humanly possible.
