ePHI Security is Benefiting from Innovation

There are very few industries more reliant on compliance and proper procedures as the healthcare industry. Since healthcare depends so heavily on medical technology, the management of this IT becomes a focal point that must be considered when planning out any infrastructure or data dissemination policy. However, artificial intelligence could change this for the better. Here’s how.

Part of the problem for many healthcare institutions is that there is a staggering amount of physical documents that are used to keep track of patients, processes, and procedures. As reported by SiliconAngle, Dr. Vasi Philomin of Amazon Web Services claims there are 1.2 billion medical documents created every day in the healthcare industry, in the United States alone. With so many documents, it’s no surprise that it’s difficult for people to manage them.

And what’s a way to take out the menial tasks done throughout the workday, or organize countless documents accumulated in a collection that is impossible for humans to go through on their own? That’s right--artificial intelligence. While it might seem like a weird way to use A.I., it is certainly a viable option, and one that industry professionals are considering to boost efficiency of care and ease of use.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) complicates this issue, but Amazon Web Services is hoping to challenge this with new initiatives. A service called Academic Comprehend Medical aims to help narrow down candidates for clinical trials--something that is impossible without the help of computers and artificial intelligence. Of course, this is only a small amount of what could be accomplished through the use of A.I. in the medical industry, so the future could potentially be very bright for any organizations that utilize this technology.
