Overview
Technological advancement and the increasing adoption of Artificial Intelligence (A.I) in healthcare are giving various solutions to the problems in the healthcare industry, benefiting patients, health care practitioners and hospitals. Opportunities brought by AI technologies allow identification of subtle signs of disease in medical images more rapid and more accurate than humans can, as well as the impact on clinical decision making, in particular disease diagnosis, leveraging on big data. For instance, recent developments include A.I being used in emergency rooms to help doctors detect intracranial bleeding resulting from head trauma and stroke, as well as creating personalised implant solutions through intelligent strategic decisions for surgery. However, technology adoption typically comes with risks, which may compromise clinical settings that require the highest level of accuracy, reliability, security and privacy of healthcare provision and patient data

The presentation aims to unfold the divergence of technology and healthcare: the benefits, opportunities and risks faced by the healthcare industry due to technology advancement. Further, it aims to discover what is on the horizon for the healthcare industry in Malaysia in the near and distant future considering Malaysia’s challenges and opportunities in enhancing health innovations
