Advanced medical algorithms are becoming the next best thing.
A medical algorithm can be a list of risk factors for various conditions, such as heart disease, or a simple calculation such as BMI (body mass index) utilizing height and weight to determine ideal numbers.
Its co-construction with various stakeholders (patients, healthcare professionals, etc.) has been critical in developing its medical algorithms and validating its ease of use.
How should we ensure that medical algorithms are safe and effective?
Medical algorithms need regulatory oversight, but that oversight must be appropriately tailored.
Many medical algorithms were developed in recent telemedicine studies to help in patient diagnosis [13] and early detection of cardiovascular diseases [14].
For more improvement in telemedicine systems, many medical algorithms can be developed to help in patient diagnosis and early detection of cardiovascular diseases and real-time analysis of vital signs can be performed in the place where the vital signs are acquired.
Perhaps, like the medical algorithms with which we are familiar, ethical algorithms will be programmed into the robots.
Attendees also saw a demonstration of ALCHEMIST, a software program developed at Stanford for generating medical algorithms from decision trees and probabilistic information about relationships between test results and diagnoses coupled with effectiveness of therapeutic interventions.
