Healthcare systems have evolved rapidly during the last decade and are now providing a variety of benefits to patients throughout the globe. This is because the healthcare industry has embraced artificial intelligence and is currently utilizing its many applications to provide a better and safer experience to patients suffering from different ailments. However, while discussing the benefits AI brings to the healthcare industry, one shouldn't forget that all that glitters in't gold.
