Artificial Intelligence Meets Medical Coding

Medical billing and coding is an integral component of healthcare. The medical coding outsourcing market alone is projected to reach16.9 billion dollars by 2021. However, coding accuracy is an ongoing challenge. To maximize efficiency and accuracy of the medical coding process, companies are testing the possibilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. …

The mechanics of identifying a spammer on your organization are genuinely clear. They will spam through your organization two ways:

  1. Through an undermined have on your organization: a contaminated machine has become a bot in a botnet and is conveying spam straightforwardly to the Internet.

2. By means of an undermined mail account: the spammer utilizes one of your client’s mail records to communicate spam through your own MTA.

To fix these circumstances:

  1. A compromised host on your network

Detection:

A compromised host is usually easy to spot. If you have a good business-class firewall, you will be able to see a high volume of outbound traffic -that does NOT originate from one of your MTA IP addresses — passing through port 25 to thousands of different locations. Getting on the infected machine, if possible, and issuing a netstat command (works with both Windows and *Nix) should show all the open outbound connections from the box. …

Hospitals and healthcare systems are shifting toward value-based care models, which are perched to increase the use of predictive data analytics to make available improved and more comprehensive population health management services to patients. The technology, if mingled with the traditional way to care, can play an essential role in developing health outcomes for patients as well as help hospitals cut down on readmission penalties.

Ground-Breaking System:

The technology behind predictive data analytics tends to deliver life-changing diagnostic information for healthcare providers by using refined algorithms. Built with AI and ML tools, the algorithms generated can examine millions of healthcare claims and electronic medical records. Predictive models can confirm existing diagnoses and categorize the patients who were left undetected or misdiagnosed. …

The introduction of complex regulatory requirements, such as HIPAA and HITECH, and the significant penalties these regulatory authorities are issuing for negligent or malicious mishandling of patient data, is forcing healthcare organisation to reassess and secure their cybersecurity.

Encouraging Cybersecurity In Medical Imaging:

Amid evolving cyber threats, cybersecurity researchers are warning medical devices manufacturers and healthcare providers to become more assiduous in protecting medical imaging devices from cyber threats. As medical imaging devices become more connected to hospital networks, they also become vulnerable to sophisticated cyber attacks. Attackers can easily penetrate to the computers that control medical devices and block or disable access to them, something that has already happened worldwide. Medical devices present an easy target for hackers. …

The potential for artificial intelligence (AI)to reshape the field of health care, that is to help improve diagnosis and allow an increasingly precise approach to medicine, is boundless. AI approach is potentially a radical expansion in the scope of public health, and many activities will be led by organizations beyond the established public health institutions. There is no doubt in the fact that AI is rapidly replacing legacy public health care systems to make better healthcare accessible to all. Here is how.

• Accessing Patient Data

One of the biggest challenges in providing patient care through public health care systems is furnishing appropriate medical history and health records. The traditional public health care systems are burdened with handling large paperwork manually, and this is where AI-based data management and storage can come to help. The data storage challenges of public healthcare facilities can be effectively reduced by AI-powered cloud computing that can avail patient data seamlessly across multiple healthcare centers and hospitals. …

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has proved itself as a game-changing technology, for every industry, and not just pharmaceuticals. In the past few years, people have witnessed the potential of AI, which can benefit the healthcare industry. AI is reinterpreting how scientists developed new drugs and discovered cures, along with how they diagnosed, and how drug adherence was dealt with.
