Today’s healthcare is delivered by artificial intelligence, robots, and blockchain


Emerging technologies are changing medicine, one person at a time, pill by pill. Opinion Own this piece Of History Collect this article as an NFTPharmacy visitor. They expect fast service – to have their prescription filled quickly or get their over-the-counter medication in a matter of minutes. This rapid interaction does not consider the entire journey of the medicine from a microscope slide to mass-production. The drug discovery process is extremely time-consuming and expensive. Despite significant advances in manufacturing and discovery, it takes 10-15 years to bring a drug to market. It also costs millions of dollars. Emerging technologies are changing healthcare and drug discovery. Artificial intelligence, for instance, does the “dirty job” of drug discovery. It runs simulations of drug efficacy and replaces trial-and-error testing. Blockchain secures healthcare records and connects patients to new clinical trials. VR and AR tools can help patients overcome fear and phobias during medical treatments. AI will allow future drugs to reach the market in a matter of five years. Some believe this could be reduced to just five years. AI can deliver life-changing results for patients suffering from illness around the world. This tech is becoming mainstream, but the biggest obstacle to making these changes is us. Patients. We, the patients. People will be replaced by AI by people using it. ChatGPT’s easy-to use interface shows people how AI might fit into our daily lives. The chatbot won’t be able to answer your questions about anything. A new compound to make a pill that will cure deadly diseases. This is a good thing, as AI applications in medicine should only be managed by professionals. These professionals have been working behind-the scenes to create real use cases and have a lot of experience with AI. Insilico Medicine made its knowledge public when it announced its sixth-generation robotics laboratory in January. Sixth-gen status refers to fully automated lab, which includes robotics and AI algorithms that conduct target discovery, compound screenings, precision medicine development and translational research. You might be wondering what fully automated means for the scientists who used to do these jobs at Insilico. It’s exactly as the image above suggests: researchers can now focus on the “human” part of their work by integrating technology and speeding processes. Because technology handles all the rest, they can focus on important tasks such as clinical trial development or side effect studies. Ask any biotech professional and you will find that AI is now a foundational part of drug discovery. AI-native Insilico medicine is no stranger to this new tech. The company partnered with Longenesis, a South Korean medical centre, and clinical trial startup Longenesis to create a blockchain-powered healthcare data management tool. The platform was designed to protect patient data and comply with guidelines such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These guidelines may have been known by patients, but they did not know how to effectively manage their data. Blockchain technology brings these regulations to life. It empowers patients to manage their privacy, and monitor their data. This is where the future of healthcare tech lies: at the fingertips of patients. All patients are invited: Healthcare transformation is within your reach. One of the most important lessons from COVID-19 was how crises can catalyze breakthroughs. Scientific collaboration was not a good idea when faced with a common threat. It was a dire mandate. The results were remarkable and historic. The vaccine was created by scientists from all over the world using existing research. This is remarkably faster than the usual 5-10 year vaccine development time. After vaccine distribution, the breakthroughs continued. Today, scientists are using the COVID jabs mRNA technology to develop new vaccines. Their targets? They are looking for devastation and difficult-to-treat conditions like Lyme and colorectal cancers. AI and other technologies can help speed up this process and propel this innovation forward, supporting scientists to save lives and change lives. 2020 taught us that public healthcare is important for everyone. COVID’s onslaught brought concepts such as mRNA and Cytokine Storms into everyday life. People tuned in to news reports and scientific publications to stay updated. This trend must continue. It is our responsibility to keep abreast of the latest healthcare developments as they impact us all. This is something I cannot stress enough: To take advantage of the future in medicine, you must keep an open mind. I trust the crypto community to keep this in mind. With NFTs, we’ve seen the technology behind Bitcoin transform the digital art world. DAOs have revolutionized the way teams manage projects. With decentralized tech, we have raised money for some of the most important causes in the world. Now it’s time to explore the next frontier in health. Scientists are creating a future in which AI-discovered medicines, virtual appointments, and psychedelic mental healthcare treatments will be the norm. Are you ready? The scientific community has come together before to make life-changing discoveries. Now it is time to unite again to support a digital future in health. I encourage you to support research organizations, learn about health tech, and explore the possibilities of personalized medicine and artificial intelligence for your personal care. There are many resources available online. Joining communities such as Discord chats, DAOs, and nonprofits is a great way to start. Technology can and will transform our healthcare. This transformation is our responsibility.
