What is the Impact of Data Science?
Data scientists have created a comprehensive virtual platform that assists patients using disease predictive modeling. A patient can use these platforms to enter his or her symptoms and receive insights about the various possible diseases based on the confidence rate.
Fremont, CA: Given the massive amounts of data produced, data science is widely regarded as one of the most important parts of any industry in today's marketplace.
Data Science in Healthcare
Providing Virtual Assistance
Data scientists have created a comprehensive virtual platform that assists patients using disease predictive modeling. A patient can use these platforms to enter his or her symptoms and receive insights about the various possible diseases based on the confidence rate. Furthermore, patients suffering from psychological issues such as depression and anxiety and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's can use virtual applications to assist them in their daily tasks.
Patient Health Monitoring
Data Science plays an important role in IoT or the Internet of Things. The various IoT devices are present as wearable devices that monitor the users' temperature heartbeat as well as other medical parameters. Data science is used to analyze the data that is collected. Doctors can keep track of a patient's circadian cycle, blood pressure, and calorie intake with the help of analytical tools.
Doctors can monitor a patient's health using home devices in addition to wearable monitoring sensors. There are many systems for chronically ill patients that track their movements, monitor their physical parameters, and analyze the patterns in the data.
Tracking and Preventing Diseases
Data Science is important in monitoring a patient's overall health and alerting necessary steps to be taken to prevent potential diseases from occurring. Data Scientists are employing powerful predictive analytics tools to detect chronic diseases at an early stage.
In the most extreme cases, diseases are not detected at an early stage due to their negligibility. This has a negative impact on the patient's health and the economic costs. As the disease spreads, so does the cost of curing it. As a result, data science plays a significant role in optimizing economic spending on healthcare.
