The healthcare industry in Punjab is on the brink of a transformative revolution with the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in hospitals. The interim health minister recently announced the adoption of AI systems for diagnosis, treatment, and preventive measures, starting with Jinnah Hospital and PKLI.
This progressive move is expected to bring about a paradigm shift in the healthcare system, enhancing efficiency, minimizing human errors, and promoting a paperless environment. Supported by the Punjab Information Technology Board, the integration of AI systems aims to offer safer and more effective treatments, streamline hospital operations, and elevate the quality of patient care.
The incorporation of AI in the Punjab health sector marks a significant milestone in utilizing technology to improve healthcare services. By implementing AI systems in hospitals, healthcare professionals will have access to advanced tools for precise diagnoses, as well as digitized management of patient records.
This commitment to embracing technological advancements in the health sector highlights the government’s determination to provide efficient and patient-centric healthcare services in Punjab, with the potential for expansion to other government teaching hospitals in the future.
