Is any body working on diagnostic software? Medicine is all about algorithms. I was wondering if it is possible to develop a software that can diagnose all illnesses by introducing algorithms.
By connecting this software to EHR and diagnostic test suggested by software, it can change shape of medical practice as it would be much easier to track the progress of patient and by introducing artificial intelligence into the software, it can itself upgrade and do research for us.
By comparing software diagnosis with a medical specialist diagnosis, errors and faults can be removed.
We have lots of portable input devices with us today, speed and accuracy of which are far greater than any normal human being. So in coming days when every thing got right it can completely change practice of medicine.
It is just an idea as I have no extraordinary expertise with software development. This idea came to me when I was studying medicine.
