Are automated diagnostics the future of patient care? Zebra is banking on it

screen-shot-2016-05-22-at-12-42-35-pm-640x0The marriage of technology and medicine has already afforded humanity with some pretty phenomenal achievements — after all, we’re closer to becoming bionic than ever before. But despite the numerous advances in the medical field, there’s still one critical problem yet to be solved: misdiagnoses.

A key component of patient care, reading and diagnosing medical images is becoming more important than ever with an aging global population, and Zebra Medical Vision believes it can help. By teaching computers to help radiologists, Zebra says, its products can help health care providers “analyze millions of imaging records to understand the risk profile of their patients, detect and predict disease, and assist in building and managing preventative care programs.”
