Lack of in-person engagement is doctor’s top concern in using AI for clinical practice

GlobalData’s survey also found that increased medical errors are also another concern.

The artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms may just be used to evaluate patient data but physicians are still concerned that the lack of in-person interaction with their patients hinders them in using the tech for clinical practice. 

This was one of the findings in GlobalData’s study, which discovered that nine out of 11 markets involved in the survey revealed their top concern for AI usage for clinical practice is insufficient physical engagement with their patients.

The next major concern, notably in Japan and India, is data privacy and increased medical errors.

GlobalData sees potential in using AI for healthcare outcomes but it raised concerns regarding data privacy, algorithm biases, and the need to strike the right balance between AI and human expertise in healthcare. 

“As AI continues to advance, it is essential to ensure its responsible and ethical use in patient care,” it said.

Despite these concerns, Sachin Gharat, Associate Project Manager of Primary Research at GlobalData, said she sees that the “momentum behind AI technologies is unmistakable, and their swift proliferation is poised to make them an integral part of the global landscape.”

The poll is composed of 574 patients from the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Japan, Brazil, Canada, India, and Mexico and was conducted between July 2023 and August 2023
