AI increases the ability to better understand the day-to-day patterns and needs of the people, and this understanding enables improving compliance, preventing accidents and support for staying healthy. Edge devices can also extend healthcare and reduce costs for underserved populations with limited medical infrastructure.
AI can use pattern recognition to identify patients at risk of developing a condition – or seeing it deteriorate due to lifestyle, environmental, genomic, or other factors.Because Tinker provides local AI, no sensitive data — including images or videos — ever leaves the device.
Tinker-enabled devices with AI models, such as medicine detection, can remind patients to take their medications, online-order prescription and help dispense the prescribed dose on schedules set by a doctor. Pharmacists can also be empowered by AI to shift from prescription-filling roles to patient engagement and management of disease, saving cost and improving patient’s compliance.
