AI will take Telemedicine to a higher, qualitatively different level, but so far the main consultant is still a doctor, not a machine.

On this site you can see examples of using Neural networks (Transformers) and natural language processing (NLP) to select a doctor's specialty and the likelihood of developing depression based on complaints. In addition, text is generated in response to the received information. All this in the context of the patient's complaints about his health.

The use of AI technologies in telemedicine has the potential to greatly enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of remote healthcare delivery. Some of the benefits of using these technologies in telemedicine include:

- Improved accuracy: Neural networks can analyze vast amounts of medical data and detect patterns that may not be readily apparent to human healthcare providers. This can help improve the accuracy of diagnoses and treatment recommendations.

- Faster diagnosis: NLP can help healthcare providers quickly identify relevant patient information in electronic medical records and other sources, reducing the time it takes to make a diagnosis and start treatment.

- Personalized care: AI algorithms can analyze patient data to create personalized treatment plans that take into account individual factors such as age, medical history, and lifestyle.

- Remote monitoring: Telemedicine can enable remote monitoring of patients with chronic conditions, allowing healthcare providers to intervene early if there are signs of a worsening condition.

- Increased access: Telemedicine can help increase access to healthcare for people in remote or underserved areas, as well as those who have difficulty traveling to appointments.

Overall, the use it in telemedicine can lead to more accurate diagnoses, faster treatment, and personalized care, which can improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. It can also help reduce healthcare costs by reducing the need for in-person appointments and hospitalizations.

While this is all at the research stage and does not replace the advice of a doctor (!), But we do not know what will happen in the very near future.
