Rising funding in artificial intelligence in healthcare fuels the market growth

Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are playing a very important role in healthcare industry. AI is predominantly used in clinical research, robotic personal assistants, and big data analytics. Classic venture capitalists and corporate strategic investors are both investing generously in this space. According to Mercom Research Report 2017, Health IT funding set a record in 2017 with AI and predictive analytics as top tech funded, with patient engagement, telehealth and clinical decision support close behind. Total corporate funding for healthcare technology companies climbed to $8.2 billion in 2017 reporting an increase of 47% from the $5.6 billion in 2016. The worldwide venture funding for digital health startups increased from $5.1 billion in 2016 to $7.2 billion in 2017 posing a growth of 42% in one year. According to TM Capital (U.S.), healthcare AI venture capital deal volume and funding was valued at $794 million in investments across 90 deals in the healthcare AI space and it was expected that AI-focused healthcare and wellness startups were to raise over $690 million from venture capital firms in 2017.

Large pool of healthcare data supports the market growth

In the healthcare industry, big data comprise information generated from clickstream, and web and social media interactions; readings from medical devices such as sensors ECG X-rays and pulse oximeters; healthcare claims and other billing records; and EMRs, prescriptions, and biometric data among other sources. With the increasing digitalization and adoption of information systems in the healthcare industry, a large volume of data is being generated at various stages of the care delivery process. As a result, healthcare is one of the top 5 big data industries especially in the U.S. Moreover, in the coming years, the volume of big data in healthcare is expected to increase as a result of the use of bidirectional patient’s portals that allow patients to upload their own data and images to their EMRs. This will include unstructured data, such as, images, medications compliance, tracking report, and blood pressure & weight logs.

AI to reduce overall healthcare cost

According to OECD estimates, 20% of healthcare spend is wasted globally. The United States Institute of Medicine believes the figure is more like 30%. According to above mentioned data, the top 15 countries by healthcare expenditure waste an average of $1,100 and $1,700 per person annually. The average waste per-person across the top 15 countries is 10-15 times more than the average amount spent by the bottom 50 countries on healthcare, which currently spend an average of around $120 per person. Underlying reasons for this waste include preventable and rectifiable system inefficiencies such as care delivery failures, over-treatment, and improper care delivery. Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help minimize such inefficiencies, ensuring substantially more stream-lined and cost-effective health ecosystems. Accurate and effectively harnessed data enables more efficient decision making across the industries, including healthcare. As healthcare providers begin to move towards a standardized format for recording patient outcomes, large sets of data will become available for analysis by AI-enabled systems which can track outcome patterns following treatment and identify optimal treatments based on patients’ profiles. As a result of this, AI empowers clinical decision-making by ensuring the right interventions and treatments for each patient, creating a personalized approach of care. The immediate consequence of this will be a significant improvement in outcomes, which will eliminate costs associated with post-treatment complications, which is one of the key drivers of cost in most healthcare ecosystems across the world.
