New Delhi : Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the healthcare landscape in India, ushering in a new era of improved patient care, advanced diagnostics, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. In order to highlight the same, India’s pioneers in training aspirants of JEE, NEET and othercompetitive exams, Vidyamandir Classes (VMC) Medical Plus Wing had organised an Educator’s Summit’2023 under the name of Biology.
The Summit was honoured by a distinguished panel of experts including Dr. Anjali Hooda – MBBS, MD in Internal Medicine from USA, Director – LiveNutriFit & Author of health prevention book “THINK WAT LIVE SMART”, Dr. Jitendra Nagpal-Senior Psychiatrist-Institute of Mental Health & Life skill Promotion, Mr. Saurabh Kumar- Chief Academics Officer (CAO), Vidyamandir Classes, Mr. Lakshya Singh-IIIT DelhiAlumnus and Dr. Gaurav Sharma – A neuroscientist &behaviour psychologist, an alumnus of National Brain Research Centre who discussed and shed lights on thetransformative impact of Artificial Intelligence on the healthcare ecosystem. Mr. Abhishek Sharma, Chief Business Officer (CBO) of Vidyamandir Classes, embraced the role of Moderator with enthusiasm, infusing the atmosphere with electrifying energy through his thought-provoking questions.
With the advent of AI technology, healthcare providers across India have gained unprecedented access to vast amounts of patient data, enabling them to make better-informed decisions, provide accurate diagnoses, and develop personalized/ customised/tailor-madetreatment plans. The panellists emphasized how AI-powered algorithms can analyse medical records, clinical images, and genetic data swiftly and accurately, leading to enhanced patient outcomes andmore efficient healthcare delivery.
Mr. Saurabh Kumar, Chief Academics Officer (CAO),Vidyamandir Classes, shared insights on the impact of Artificial Intelligence in the Healthcare ecosystemstating, “AI has transformed surgical procedures, making them less invasive, more precise, and promoting faster recovery for patients. Robots guided by AI algorithms can assist surgeons during intricatesurgeries, offering greater precision, reducing surgical trauma, and minimizing post-operative complications. These advancements in surgical technology are revolutionizing the field and improving patient care.The growing technology is opening up new horizon for the medical aspirants in terms of research, knowledge, and career opportunities to grow rampantly.”
Mr. Abhishek Sharma, Chief Business Officer (CBO),Vidyamandir Classes, draws inspiration from the renowned words of Malcolm Gladwell in his bestselling novel Outliers: “10,000 hours of practice is the threshold for achieving mastery.’ Take a glance at luminaries like Bill Gates, Beatles, Mozart, J RobertOppenheimer and other extremely successful athletes in the Premier Leagues, or other Sporting Trailblazersand you’ll observe that they dedicated countless hours honing their skills to attain legendary status.”
“What’s truly unsettling is that AI has the potential tocompletely topple this paradigm. It can achieve mastery in a specific activity or sport with just an hour of practice. Basically, due to extremely high processing power, 1hour of AI = 10000 hours of human practice, 1year of AI = 10000 years of evolution. Unquestionably, AI will be a formidable game changer, poised to revolutionize the entire landscape. We have a choice,either to be in conflict with AI, or use it as a tool to collaborate & build something extraordinary”
The panellists emphasized that AI in healthcare extends beyond diagnostics and surgery, emphasizing its role in improving patient monitoring, disease management, and telemedicine. AI-powered wearable devices and remote monitoring systems enable continuous tracking of vital signs, facilitating early detection of abnormalities and timely medical interventions. Furthermore, telemedicine platforms leveraging AI algorithms allow patients to access medical advice remotely, bridging the gap between doctors and patients in remote areas.
Addressing concerns about data security and privacy, the panellists emphasized the importance of robust data protection frameworks and adherence to strict ethical guidelines. They highlighted that the development and deployment of AI in healthcare must prioritize patient privacy and data confidentiality to maintain public trust in these transformative technologies.
As AI continues to evolve, healthcare providers in India are embracing these advancements to redefine the healthcare ecosystem and provide superior patient care. The panellists agreed that the collaboration between medical professionals, researchers, and technology experts is crucial to further harness the potential of AI and drive innovation in the field of healthcare.
The insights shared by the panellists shed light on the immense potential of AI in reshaping the healthcare landscape in India. The growing expertise and dedication to leveraging technology for the betterment of healthcare have been instrumental in inspiring progress and ensuring improved patient outcomes.
