UK hospitals use AI to prioritise patients urgently in need of care

According to a report, hospitals in England and Wales have been using artificial intelligence to rank patients in order of urgency to clear the mounting backlogs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.There are multiple softwares that have been deployed to collate and automatically rate patient’s responses with digital questionnaires. These technologies utilise machine learning to identify unnecessary appointments, which can be prompted to virtual interactions with medical practitioners instead.
