01. What is it

The AI is an advanced digital technology allowing machines to reporduce or overcome some of the skills requiring intelligence when performed by humans.

Promoting this technology in the field of Health is crucial for the broad impact it can have on the well-being of citizens, ensuring progress towards the P4 Medicine model (Preventive, Predictive, Participatory and Personalized).

 

02. Applications

The research and development of AI tools in Health is experiencing significant growth in recent times. These applications cover a wide range of fields:

  • Support health professionals in decision-making regarding the treatment and prevention of diseases.
  • Ensuring more accurate diagnoses.
  • Automatic interpretation of imaging test results.
  • Monitoring of electronic health records.
  • Identification of drug interactions.
  • Promotion and prevention of collective health.
  • Epidemiological surveillance, among others.

03. Purpose

The AI area of the TIC Salut Social Foundation aims to generate an environment that is conducive to the design and implementation of AI solutions that help optimize the Catalan Health System, with a core focus on improving the health of the citizens, who are at the heart of the system.
