Is it time to move away from the rushed, human doctor diagnosis to a data and tech supported diagnosis? How might we balance doctor’s expertise and the advances in technology to work in synergy and make quicker and more reliable diagnoses?
New technologies, data collection and Ai are improving exponentially and frequently advancing daily medical practice. They make us better, more reliable, and precise. They enable us to assess significant quantities of data, cross reference and have a steady hand when operating. In the future, as technology and data become so advanced, it will be able to process much more information than a human and make a more accurate diagnosis.
All of this poses a big question… What then, will be the role of the doctors?
How can we balance doctor’s expertise and the advances of technology to work in synergy and make quicker and more reliable diagnoses, effectively allocate resources, and bring a human touch, whilst reducing costs?
Utilising elements of our Service Design System and input from stakeholders within the health sector, we’ve begun to reimagine what the patient experience of the future might look like, broken down into 5 key elements. This is Part 4 in a 5-part series, you can click here to go back and start reading from part 1.
The Patient Lifecycle Reimagined
Imagine the space this might create for doctors to focus on the human side of the experience, allowing space to add a layer of mental and wellbeing support. Imagine this well-oiled machine, leveraging both humans and tech to create a vastly improved experience for patients.
Making this a reality raises several challenges and questions:

Or better still – join the conversation and have the opportunity to influence this discussion with our expert panel, including David Hadley from Mediclinic and Dean Pollard from Bupa. This British Business Group event, sponsored by Engine Service Design, can be attended either live and in person if you are in Dubai, or virtually if you are anywhere else in the world.
We recommend reserving your in-person or virtual seat early as spaces are limited.
The use of voice-enabled technology in healthcare is not limited to making it easier for doctors to dictate patient notes. From providing patients with information on their conditions and access to services to detecting and treating various ailments, voice-recognition software offers many possibilities.
