The Revolutionary Data Science
Data Science in today’s world is not just a profession or a kind of study. It’s a revolution, and it’s hard to find any industry which has not been impacted by it. Healthcare and Medical Science have also entered a totally new phase with the advent of Data Science, and they have the advantage that even before the era of digitization, hospitals and doctors used to store patients’ data, as a result of which there’s already a lot of available data to be tapped into.
Fields Where Data Science Is Affecting Healthcare
- Precision Treatment: What we currently understand about medicines is that there are certain classes of medicines and doctors prescribe one particular class in all the relevant diseases. But with the help of Data Science, it is possible to monitor each and every patient and design the right type and dosage of medicines. Doctors are also able to keep real-time tracking of patients’ health and take necessary action accordingly. This is not just improving the treatment methods, but also reducing the death rates.
- Wearable Devices: With Machine Learning Algorithms, it is possible to keep track of functioning of the whole human body and send signals at even the slightest change or disorder. This way, we can catch every symptom the moment it arises, and start treatment quickly.
- Improving Diagnostic Accuracy: No matter how advanced healthcare has become today, yet there is a significant number of instances of misdiagnosing. It can reduce this problem completely by checking each and every test result against previous results already stored in the databases.
