  • How Is Machine Learning Transforming Healthcare?

    Table of contents How is Machine Learning Transforming Healthcare? Medical Diagnostics Epidemic Control Drug Discovery and Clinical Research Treatment Recommendations Chatbots Internet of Medical Things Transforming Healthcare the Scalefocus Way Conclusions How Is Machine Learning Transforming Healthcare? Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning might have been considered the future of healthcare not that long ago, but things have changed. What was once considered futuristic is the real world we inhabit now, and the rate the industry is being transformed by these powerful drivers is astonishing to witness. Let’s explore some of the areas being revolutionized before our eyes. Medical Diagnostics Mаchine Learning is very effective in diagnostics and recognizing different types of diseases that are typically very difficult to detect, especially in the initial stages, when early diagnostics could be life-saving. Such technology can be deployed in various healthcare sectors to detect different types of cancer, neurological conditions, pathogens, etc. Machine Learning models can be widely deployed and very effective. They could be based on physiological, environmental, and genetic data that helps discover risk factors and improve the diagnostic accuracy. This results in better treatment efficiency and reduction of unnecessary hospital visits whenever remote examination is possible. Epidemic Control The COVID-19 pandemic has proved that Artificial Intelligence could be key to limiting the infection spread. ML facilitates the processing of satellite information, social media trends, and news websites to make conclusions on epidemic outbreaks around the globe to gain better control of them. Unlike random testing, ML comprehensive testing strategies allow researchers to predict the possible scope of the epidemic at its very start. They can also reduce the infection spread when specific age groups or geographic areas are recognized to be potentially at risk, and necessary measures are taken as a precaution. Drug Discovery and Clinical Research Machine Learning algorithms can model drug components that treat similar diseases, using existing records of their effect on patients. This would facilitate personal medication for individuals with certain combinations of illnesses and unique requirements. Machine Learning helps researchers leverage past and present research to make the preclinical process more efficient and Deep Learning facilitates finding new patterns in relatively unexplored data sets. Clinical research and trials of new medications are an arduous and costly process. However, sometimes the time to market for a specific drug or vaccine needs to be accelerated to the maximum. You really do not need to look further than the COVID-19 vaccines and the unprecedented speed they became available. Luckily, ML algorithms reduce data-based errors by detecting the best samples and analysing the ongoing data from the trial participants. Treatment Recommendations Accurate diagnostics is critical for effective treatment. That is why treatment recommendation AI can play a significant role in improving healthcare quality. Reinforcement Learning (RL) is Machine Learning that makes decisions based on analysing experience. This means Reinforcement Learning practically emulates the decision-making process of knowledgeable physicians. While not fully deployed in replacing actual doctors, Reinforcement Learning has been used for clinical trial dosing in simulation settings and determining the medication dosage. Chatbots Robots are not here to take our jobs away. But they can replace or augment human operators and do 24/7 routine work that does not require emotional intelligence, creativity, or critical thinking. Healthcare organizations typically utilize them to free up resources, improve customer satisfaction, reduce costs and deliver better business value. Chatbots and automated surveys facilitate patients to resolve issues without the help of a physician. They collect and use patient interaction data to improve service quality and provide reminders and motivational messages. This way, the automation of repetitive tasks lets healthcare specialists concentrate on emergencies or more complicated cases. Chatbots are evolving and getting easily accessible and inexpensive, so the industry is expected to be taking even more advantage of them. The Scalefocus remote software development centers have extensive experience building chatbot solutions that are tailor-made to our partners’ business models. Internet of Medical Things Smartwatches, bio patches, smart hearing aids, smart pills – these wearables are also known as the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and make healthcare more connected than ever. They finetune treatment programs by using precise statistics on the patients’ sleep and nutrition habits or average activity level and sending real-time information on their health state to their doctors. Patients increasingly prefer contacting physicians remotely and getting actual treatment only if necessary. That means at least two things – self-care is a trend that is here to stay, and the wearables’ role is only getting more significant. They detect tendencies or anomalies in the patients’ regime and suggest possible modifications for a healthier lifestyle and disease prevention. Scalefocus has gained solid experience working with healthcare organizations, including anindustry leader that utilizes our offshore development centers as service providers. Such expertise has allowed us to develop end-to-end platforms and wearables like the award-winning SoFit device – a scalable integrated system for patients who need remote Physical Therapy or Kinesiotherapy. It provides on-demand Telehealth services, allowing for complete rehabilitation treatment even without a physician’s presence.

  • Remote Software Development Center | Scalefocus

    Remote Delivery Center Set up your extended offshore and nearshore software development operations from framework to kick-off in just 45 days Get in Touch Services How it works? Engagement Models Why Scalefocus? Our Work Reimagine the way you have been doing offshore and nearshore software development. Whether market-driven or triggered by internal operational needs, the development and provision of modern and reliable digital services and products is increasingly becoming a core competence for many companies. And more and more of them are opting for offshore or nearshore software development services in order to: Bridge the talent gap The global IT talent shortage isn’t going away! The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that by 2026, the shortage of software engineers in the US will exceed 1.2M. Europe is currently facing a shortfall of 600 000 unfulfilled IT positions. Restrain rising costs for development When setting up a remote delivery center, businesses can expect a detailed analysis of their digital landscape, of the specific value drivers, as well as of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Accelerate time-to-market for new products To scale their business in the digital world, companies need to accelerate software development lifecycles and rely on innovation in new product development and upgrades. Remote software delivery teams are used to agile development, consolidated way of working and ease of management. Gain access to the latest technologies Offshore and nearshore software service providers have vast experience across different industry verticals and will help you to apply the latest technologies and best practices, backed up by world-class engineering team. Offshore and nearshore development services can help you locate the right talent, extend your expertise and reduce risks Access to top talent Finding and locking down tech talent takes time and money. Offshore and nearshore development partners enable companies to tap into a top-notch engineering talent pool, using latest technologies, and to take advantage of software development innovations. Flexibility in responsibility & control With a remote development center, you can take as much control and responsibility as you feel comfortable with. From extended teams to consultancy and technology advisory, your provider assumes the risks and continuous accountability from offshore while you focus on your core business strategy. Agile technology adoption Offshore and nearshore development centers have established processes for test automation and development quality. Prototypes and experiments are left in the hands of technology experts. Multidisciplinary teams fill in the gaps in your organization with technology & professional services expertise across the board. Quickly scale up or down Whether you need just a few developers or are under pressure to scale up your operations quickly, offshore and nearshore development centers provide the flexibility to easily scale up or down as projects come and go, without worries about HR processes, under-utilised office space, and IT assets. Accelerated time-to-market The offshore and nearshore development center quickly aligns with your strategy, long-term objectives and mimics the structure of your organization. The adjustable team composition matches varying project needs and accelerates the pace of development and tools to deliver services at high velocity. Long-term budget predictability Long-term commitment from both client and vendor enables further savings for the former. A predictable cost service is tied to outcomes that allow you to stay within your budgetary and time constraints. How Does the Remote Delivery Center Work? Scalefocus has developed the Remote Software Delivery Center as a special operational model to address the growing need for software development partners with a mature approach and the right setup to provide value beyond staff augmentation. This engagement employs a comprehensive agile multi-level communication and operational matrix that ensures our teams act as an extended self-sufficient department of your business. We take full ownership of the timeline and deliverables of your digital initiatives or even roadmap, so you can focus on your core business and be confident that everything will be delivered on time and in scope. Offshore Software Development vs. Other Service Models In-house team You get more control when you hire an in-house team, but you can grow only as fast as your hiring process allows. It is more challenging to scale up and down and access all the latest, trending technologies. Nearshore software development Nearshore outsourcing is when the development partner is near their client. Usually in a similar time zone or region with fewer linguistic and cultural differences. Onshore software development Onshoring happens when you hire your tech partner within the borders of your own country. Because both companies operate in an environment with the same cost of living, this is often the more expensive option. Offshore software development Offshoring is partnering with a provider usually overseas that has access to a vast talent pool. Offshoring partners enable greater cost optimizations, operational efficiency, and extended business coverage after working hours. Choose Between Different Service Engagement Models Offshore and nearshore development partners provide flexibility with different engagement models that you can select based on your desired business outcomes, control preferences, and the type of resources you need. Consultancy and Technology Advisory Solution Development Staff Augmentation Return on Investment Engagement Complexity High Low High Dedicated Teams Offshore Delivery Center Managed Services Consultancy & Technology Advisory Staff Augmentation Offshore and Nearshore Delivery Center Solution Implementation and Development Dedicated Teams Managed Services How to Choose the Offshore or Nearshore Partner That Is Right for You Offshoring development should be a long-term relationship. The right partner will accelerate your market strategy while selecting the wrong one can wreak havoc on your business operations. It’s always better to set clear expectations from the beginning and to have a clear view of what you expect, such as expertise, communication style, security procedures, talent availability, and proactiveness. Proactiveness, paired with industry-specific experience and ability to deliver, is one of the best qualities an offshore development partner might have. Why Choose Scalefocus?
