The future of healthcare is dependent on securing AI-powered medical devices
Investments in artificial intelligence and machine learning are finally on the rise in healthcare.

And the investments are expected to be significant; the global AI in healthcare market size is estimated to reach $120.2 billion by 2028.
The opportunities for AI in healthcare are widespread, spanning both operational and clinical use cases including fraud prevention, voice-assisted charting, registration, remote patient monitoring and more. AI holds particular promise for connected medical devices and telehealth – an integral part of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) – as it enables faster triage, intake, detection and decision making.
In fact, new patient apps and connected medical devices leveraging AI are already being launched regularly. For example, Google recently introduced a new AI-powered dermatology app that uses image recognition algorithms to provide expert, personalized help by suggesting possible skin conditions based on patient-uploaded photos.
