CEO of fast-growing start-up predicts the future of AI in healthcare

The guest column by Neal K. Shah appeared in a recent edition of WRAL TechWire.

WRAL TechWire recently published a guest column by Neal K. Shah, Chief Executive Officer of CareYaya Health Technologies, that paints an intriguing future for healthcare.

The company says it is one of the fastest-growing health-tech start-ups in America, solving home care for those with elderly loved ones and medically vulnerable children. “We’re disrupting the established, broken system of care. Our care marketplace connects clients with great, affordable care from pre-health college students,” Care Yaya writes.

So how does its top executive describe the future of healthcare?

Imagine this: You wake up one morning and your smartphone alerts you that it has detected signs of diabetes in your voice. You’re at risk of a heart attack, it says, based on an eye scan it took while you were sleeping. It has already scheduled an appointment with your doctor and ordered the medication you need.

Science fiction? Hardly. This is what artificial intelligence (AI) is already doing in healthcare. And you won’t believe what’s coming next.

A technological revolution is underway in medicine, and it’s being driven by AI. From detecting diseases to personalizing treatments, intelligent machines are transforming how we prevent, diagnose and treat illness. In the process, they’re beginning to provide the “human touch” that’s been long missing from our impersonal, fragmented and costly healthcare system.

Got diabetes? There’s an AI that can detect it from the sound of your voice.

Battling depression? An algorithm can predict which drug will work best for you based on your brain waves.

At risk of heart disease? A deep learning model can spot it in your eyes.
