Increasing Complexities, Data Breaches, and High Costs to Restrict Market Growth

Though Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a lot of uses in healthcare, the adoption of AI in healthcare is limited. The reason for this is the complexities faced by healthcare providers. The incorporation of artificial intelligence may lead to inaccuracies and create a gap between the diagnosis and medicines prescribed to the patient. Another factor that hampers the market is data privacy issues. In many countries, there are certain regulations to protect patient health data. The violation of this regulation can lead to legal and financial penalties. Also, problems, such as unethical gathering of sensitive data, increase the risk of patient data safety. Thus, increasing concerns of patient safety and unethical collection of patient data are hampering the overall growth of the market.

  • According to the statistics published by the CI security, data breaches in the healthcare industry increased by around 36.0% in the second half of 2020. This revealed that around 21.3 million patient records were hampered.

Such factors are restraining the use of artificial intelligence technology by the healthcare providers and hampering the growth of the market.
