Healthcare industry is on the verge of transformation. Since the wearable devices have come in the market, experts are striving to utilize them for healthcare. Indeed, this persuasion is going to benefit people in dissimilar ways.

For practicing wearable device concept, we need IoT. So, Why do healthcare applications require AI engines. Let's get insights.

Artificial Intelligence in wearable devices and Applications

Indeed, a wearable device works on the Internet of Things (IoT) mechanism. Though, AI and machine learning are two powerful tools in such applications and devices. You have to understand that the data collected from wearable would not have any value for vendor and users, without AI engine. AI engines are solutions that process the collected data from wearable and generate output in the form of message or action.

That's why wearable app developers are integrating AI Engine in wearable health care applications & platforms. Besides, AI allows data mining that is very crucial for intelligent healthcare platforms (application) that connects smartphones, website, IoT device, wearables, that gather and return health insights of a person.

Building Intelligent Healthcare Platform

You have to understand that creating an AI-based healthcare platform isn't as simple as it sounds. It should be designed and developed strategically. More specifically, it should contain a large database of essential points derived from various medical sources. So that the application can emulate doctors' knowledge.

You should know that, with the help of machine learning, platforms can generate a clinical model of the patient by accessing patient-specific data, effects of time and location via wearable. Moreover, wearables can interact with the platform API and it can showcase various insights about data received from device.

Let's learn more about application of wearables and AI-based applications that can revolutionize healthcare industry.

1. Medication management

In the upcoming years, AI doctor application can prescribe medication to patients. Actually, a neural network helps the application in detection and connection to a platform for gathering required medical data and in prescribing medications.

This prescription gets transferred to the patient's wearable device so that he/she can take medication. Such devices can also help doctors in time of medical emergencies. Besides, a wearable app can remind people the time of taking medicine.

Indeed, the number of such applications will grow in the upcoming time, and they will largely help people.

2. Preventive Health

Have you heard about Google x nano particles? Nano-particles are none other than tiny wearable devices that can be injected in to arteries of the human.

Actually, there is a big buzz word around the world about nanobots (nano-particles). Google wants to inject them in human arteries, and it is working on the techniques to take them out. If it will become possible Google X will be a breakthrough in Medtech.

These nanobots can be injected in body via capsules, and after reaching inside the body they can diagnose diseases, impending heart attacks, cancers and strokes by scrutinizing person's biochemistry. This wearable can transfer the data to an AI based application that can utilize machine learning to find out abnormalities in the body. Besides, doctors can utilize this procured information for treatments.

3. Medical Consultation

If a wearable device detects any abnormality in the person, apps can inform immediately to the person, and he/she can report and consult the doctor. Besides, An AI doctor can also provide help in this situation.

Experts ensure the credibility of applications by integrating deep learning standards. Deep learning ensures that application or intelligent platform make no mistake and perform detection at a broader extent. This takes place because deep learning works on the self-learning model.

How will be the future of healthcare with wearables?

Today, several wearable devices such as smartwatches and fitness trackers are available in the market. Soon, there will be numbers of wearable devices that will be brimming with several capabilities. Undoubtedly, these devices will soon get integrated with healthcare applications, and other platforms such as clinical records and learning algorithms.

The application and platforms combined with AI will provide support to people during their healthcare treatment. Surely, this support will deliver personalized healthcare help to people. With the time, the profiles generated by such application will enable monitoring and guidance based on the person's need & preferences.

Moreover, the data collected by wearable technology such as heart rate, range of bio-markers in blood & sweat, sleeping pattern, will help application to provide essential healthcare measure to people. Soon such applications will become health advisers of people. Besides, people can set daily reminders for walk and device can monitor step count by keeping track of the various body measures such as heart rate, blood pressure, glucose level, weight and more.

Another big thing in this sector will be stress monitoring, applications will remind people that they should take a break or perform relaxation exercises.

I know all of these things sounds unrealistic, but it is true. Experts in various organization are working on such platforms and engaged in the development of AI-based wearable healthcare applications. Surely, in upcoming years the healthcare industry will face several big changes and this will revolutionize this industry.

Healthcare Mobile Application Development

Healthcare app development is growing at a faster pace, and various technologies are being employed to make unmatched healthcare apps. With AI & machine learning, the development will reach on another level.

Now developers around the world are engaged in harnessing app development technologies like Blockchain, AR/VR to develop such great healthcare applications. The concept of wearable & AI integration in healthcare apps will give such endeavors boost in the future.

If you are engaged in medical industry then this is the right time to invest in a mobile application. With unique features and unmatched capabilities, your app can become a successful product and can earn huge appreciation.
