How artificial intelligence is used in the development of patient treatment regimens: the US experience

An AI-assisted pneumonia care scheme has already saved a U.S. clinic $1,356 per patient, reduced hospital stays by two days, and significantly reduced hospital return visits.
Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine, Florida is using artificial intelligence to improve the treatment of pneumonia, sepsis and a dozen other costly, high-mortality diseases.

The situation when a medical worker refuses to treat a patient is not uncommon in Ukrainian medicine. But more often doctors do not know their rights and tolerate inadequate patients to the last.

Routine rules Continue reading
