The Future of Diagnosis: Revolutionary Medical Devices on the Horizon

Diagnosis is the cornerstone of the medical profession. It’s how doctors know whether or not to prescribe a treatment, and it’s an essential part of keeping patients healthy. But when was the last time that you thought about diagnosis in your own life? It may seem like something that only happens when you go to your doctor for an exam, but there are actually some new technologies on the horizon that could change how doctors diagnose diseases and keep track of their patients’ health conditions. In this article Dr. Jon Kiev¬†,¬†look at what these technologies are, why they’re so important for medicine today and tomorrow, and how they might change things forever.

Wearable health monitors

Wearable health monitors are already available and can be used to track heart rate and other vital signs. They can also be used to track sleep patterns, which is important because it’s been shown that people who get less than six hours of sleep per night have a higher risk of heart attack or stroke.

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful tool that can be used to assist with diagnosis, long-term disease management and detection of disease earlier. AI has been around for decades, but it’s only now beginning to be integrated into medical devices.

In fact, there are several AI systems currently being developed by companies such as IBM Watson Health and Google DeepMind Health that may have an impact on our lives in the coming years.

Artificial intelligence-based diagnostic systems

Artificial intelligence-based diagnostic systems are a new frontier in medicine. AI can help doctors make more accurate diagnoses, and it can also predict future health problems.

Wearable AI for chronic disease management

The future of diagnosis will be a world with wearable AI devices, AI-based diagnostic systems and AI-based health monitors. These will help us detect diseases earlier than ever before, allowing us to treat them more effectively.

Wearable devices are already being used by some patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease who want to monitor their health at home without having to visit the doctor’s office all the time. One example is Alivecor’s KardiaBand 2: an electrocardiogram (ECG) monitor that attaches directly onto your smartphone so you can take an ECG anywhere you go! It works by placing two fingers against electrodes on either side of its sensor pad; this sends an electrical signal through your body which records how fast or slow your heart beats at any given moment in time – giving doctors a quick snapshot into how well they’re treating their patients’ conditions over time (or not).


As we move toward a future of high-tech medicine, it’s important to remember that these devices are only as good as their human users. Doctors and patients alike will need to be careful when using these new tools and ensure they’re getting accurate results from them. However, if all goes well, they could help revolutionize how we diagnose disease and manage chronic conditions like diabetes or hypertension–all while saving money on expensive tests like CT scans or MRIs!
