The drug discovery process in the industry is witnessing a paradigm shift to meet the growing needs of society and patients. Healthcare artificial intelligence advancements in clinical research and personal digital assistants will create growth opportunities for artificial intelligence technology in the future. The use of artificial intelligence and its broadening horizons in research areas is likely to drive the market growth.

The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has had a positive impact on healthcare AI market owing to growing awareness and adoption of digital health. It can be adopted to gain insights to wider picture of the situation from diagnosis, treatment and to combat new disease transmission. Healthcare AI is an innovative technology which has been widely used to fight COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, to keep a continuous tab on patients during COVID-19 pandemic with effective management, UC San Diego Health has developed an algorithm based on artificial intelligence for more than 2,000 lung X-ray images, helping radiologist to detect early sign of pneumonia in COVID-19 patients.

Advancements in big data analytics will spur the market expansion

Significant advancements in healthcare artificial intelligence are being made in analysis of big data in order to improve its outcome in healthcare. Introduction of IoT devices has created a continuous stream of data while monitoring the health of patients which makes these devices a major contributor to big data in healthcare. SparkSeq is an efficient and cloud-ready platform based on Apache Spark framework and Hadoop library that is being used for analyses of genomic data for interactive genomic data analysis with nucleotide precision. SAMQA that identifies errors and ensures the quality of large-scale genomic data was developed for the National Institutes of Health Cancer Genome Atlas project to identify and report errors including sequence alignment/map (SAM) format error and empty reads. Furthermore, Clinical Decision Support (CDS) software analyses medical data on the spot to provide healthcare practitioners with advice as they make prescriptive decisions. Thus, advancements in big data analytics is set to augment the implementation of healthcare artificial intelligence data management.

High initial capital investment may slow down the healthcare artificial intelligence market revenue

Healthcare artificial intelligence set-up requires huge investments since the machines involved are very complex in nature making it highly expensive. Its timely maintenance and repair charges are also huge. Apart from this, high software costs are incurred, since these programs need to be frequently updated as per the changing environment to make the machines more capable of handling increasing data over the time. Another factor which contributes to its huge initial costs is the procedure of reinstalling the systems in case of severe breakdowns. Thus, high initial capital investment is one of the major drawbacks hindering the usage of healthcare AI systems.
