Global healthcare IT market: Emergence of AI-enabled emotion recognition technologies

Doctors and caregivers in the healthcare industry are increasingly relying on evolving medical technologies such as AI for accurate ailment diagnosis and patient treatment. AI has been garnering increasing acceptance in the healthcare IT landscape. One use case of AI in healthcare is emotion recognition wherein the solution is designed to capture, interpret and respond to human emotions and moods.

For instance, telemedicine vendors (that specialize in telepsychiatry) have started using emotion recognition technology to understand what patients are feeling. The technology can be used on patients who are not physically present and are not expressing their reactions to psychiatrists. In the remote application of the technology, smartphones and tablet cameras are used to capture the patient’s facial expressions. The AI algorithm analyzes the expressions and provides an accurate analysis of the emotional state of patients in real time.

“Improving healthcare services have led to an increase in the average human lifespan. This has led to an increase in chronic diseases, and the number of patients necessitating the need reduce the per-patient time of a doctor and to increase the efficiency of treatment. The healthcare IT solution will play a significant role in automating the treatment process right from the admission of patients, to maintaining records of treatment and scheduling follow-ups,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on IT professional services.
