Health Technology / Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered application will now monitor patients suffering from mental illness
A patient usually goes to the doctor at some point. The doctor makes a diagnosis by talking to the patient and based on his behavior. This is an age old method. Doctors cannot monitor continuously. Therefore, how much the patient’s condition has improved or how much has deteriorated, it cannot be continuously monitored. But the app will work. Researchers say humans are not perfect.
Often the doctor is unable to notice the patient’s speech and behavior properly. An app with artificial intelligence fills this shortcoming. He keeps a constant watch on the speech and behavior of the patient. Based on its data, doctors can better understand the patient’s condition. Like a patient talking illogically. If it doesn’t make sense, it could be a symptom of schizophrenia. The patient talks differently when he is depressed.
With the help of the app, the patient can be monitored continuously and daily, on the basis of which the accurate treatment is revealed. The dosage of the drug is of great importance in mental illness, which is decided by the doctor considering the condition of the patient. The mobile app talks to the patient for 5 to 10 minutes and records their responses. To elicit the patient’s feelings, ask her to tell a short story. Further they are asked to touch and swipe the mobile screen to know the movements of their hands. The app sends its data directly to the doctor.
