AI in Healthcare Qatar

AI in Healthcare Qatar 2020 (AIHQ20) is the first forum of its kind to take place in Qatar and will provide a platform for global and local industry leaders to connect, engage and share experience on how AI is transforming the health sector globally and what it means for Qatar to become a regional Centre of Excellence for AI in healthcare.

Globally, Healthcare industry leaders are opening their doors to innovation and exploring the latest technologies in order to decrease the cost of care and, most importantly, provide greater access to care.

There continues to be an increased interest in and rapid development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions, enhancing the delivery of care across a range of areas – such as wellness, the detection of disease, diagnosis and treatment. The increased adoption of AI is transforming the healthcare landscape, reshaping the way providers, regulators, payers and patients interact with one another, and with the industry overall.

The total investment in AI across both the public and private healthcare sectors is expected to reach $6.6 billion by 2021, according to Forbes. On the other hand, AI is predicted to contribute an additional 14% to global GDP – $15.7 trillion by 2030 (PwC), with the potential for $150 billion of annual savings to be gained by 2026 through the use of top AI applications (Accenture).
