AI Tools Unveiled to Empower Healthcare Sector

October 20, 2023

At the HLTH 2023 conference, Microsoft unveiled novel data and AI tools designed to assist healthcare institutions in enhancing both patient and clinician experiences. These innovations aim to streamline the delivery of high-quality care in a more cost-effective manner.

Data plays a pivotal role in the healthcare sector, enhancing patient and clinician experiences, improving health outcomes, and boosting healthcare system performance. The right data strategy can have a transformative impact on people's lives. The healthcare industry is grappling with the rapid growth of data. A staggering 97% of the vast amounts of data produced by hospitals remains unused, yet this data holds invaluable insights that can lead to significant clinical and operational breakthroughs.

At the HLTH 2023 conference, Microsoft unveiled new data solutions aimed at assisting healthcare organizations in enhancing patient and clinician experiences. These solutions, integrated with the Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, offer a unified, secure, and responsible approach to data strategy.

The AI in Healthcare Market is projected to grow from USD 14.6 Billion in 2023 to USD 102.7 Billion by 2028, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 47.6%

A significant driver for the AI in Healthcare market is the generation of large and complex healthcare datasets. The performance of AI algorithms largely depends on the quality and availability of data. Medical data collection often interrupts the workflow of medical professionals, leading to incomplete data collection.

Microsoft Fabric

Earlier introduced as a unified analytics platform, Microsoft Fabric now incorporates industry-specific data solutions. This platform streamlines the management of disconnected health data sources, offering a secure method to access, analyze, and visualize data-driven insights.

53% of physicians reported clinical burnout in 2023. Microsoft's Dragon Ambient eXperience (DAX™) Copilot is a solution designed to address this, automating clinical summaries and significantly reducing the time clinicians spend on documentation. Microsoft's healthcare solutions are grounded in trust and adhere to the company’s Responsible AI principles. These innovations aim to create seamless experiences at every point of care, foster collaboration, empower the healthcare workforce, and derive value from clinical and operational data.

Azure AI Health Insights

This is a cognitive service that provides prebuilt models to assist clinicians and researchers in patient care. It offers tools like the "patient timeline," which uses generative AI to extract key events from unstructured data, presenting a chronological view of a patient’s medical history.

Azure AI Health Bot tool uses generative AI to offer out-of-the-box healthcare intelligence. It can be customized and integrated into existing workflows, sourcing answers from credible institutions like the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Part of Azure AI Language service, Text Analytics for Health tool applies machine learning to extract and label essential medical information from various unstructured texts. It includes open-source templates for population health, patient Q&A, clinical trials, and mass historic data processing.

Microsoft is at the forefront of integrating AI into healthcare. By introducing a suite of AI-powered solutions, they aim to help healthcare organizations unlock deeper insights, streamline operations, and provide enhanced care to patients.
