The cost of healthcare is once again at the center of a national debate. With premiums rising, the baby boomers aging, and diabetes, the most expensive disease in the world, affecting 10% of the US population, the rising cost of healthcare in America is an issue that affects all of us. In the past, the implementation of new and emerging technologies in healthcare has contributed to the climbing costs. In contrast, the application of AI into healthcare is promising to drive those costs down.

    It might drive down costs, for consultations, although some patients will be reluctant to talk to robot.

    Cancer is a mulitbillion dollar a year industry, with insanely expensive so called treatments.

    Switzerland has a 97% success rate, and all they use is heat treatments and a strict diet.

    No Chemo, Radio, Insanely expensive drugs or surgery is needed in most cases.

    Their legislation requires that all treatments are effective, so whether we like it or not their success rate is genuine.

    Switzerland is like China in the stone ages, very advanced while the rest of the world is tribal.


    Or the rest of the world is in the cut, radiate, poison phase.


    Ai might lower health costs in the western world, but the mortgage your house for the latest, $5000 a month drug will go on.

    I would rather go to Switzerland or Germany and spend $28k, or better still use the ones here to show the before and after affects, and adopt their diet, than trust the Pharma, companys we have here.

      Fake news ad nauseam. Simply too funny for words!

      Google is your friend.

      "The number of cancer patients and the number of deaths from cancer in Switzerland are increasing. But, conversely, the risk of dying from cancer is actually decreasing, according to a report released on Monday by the Swiss Federal Statistical Office.

      The increases are primarily due to demographic changes. There are increasing numbers of old people in the population, and old people tend to have more chronic diseases, said Pascale Strupler, director of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, at a press conference on Monday.

      The good news: the risk of dying from cancer decreased by 27% for women and by 36% for men over the 30-year period from 1983 to 2012.

      In Switzerland, 9,000 men and 7,000 women die of cancer on average each year. Men die most frequently from lung cancer (22%), prostate cancer (15%) and colon cancer (10%), whereas women die of breast cancer (19%), lung cancer (15%) and colon cancer (10%). Children die most frequently of leukemia and brain tumors."


      There's more, if you actually interested in the facts.

        But you have to admit the Swiss do make a great cup of hot chocolate, even if their cheese if full of holes.

          Yes, and they have legislation passed in their senate, that ONLY cures that work are allowed in their country.

          https://www.paracelsus.com/biological-medicine

          And numbers will be up with an aging population, but at least they are ditching so called cures that do more harm than good.

          Modern medicine has achieved many triumphs. Unfortunately, it has shown little success with the chronic and degenerative diseases that are common today. So many patients come to us after years of treatment with drugs, surgery or radiation, too often with little real benefit. In fact, their conventional treatment has commonly caused them great suffering.
          But l am all for handing out early Xmas presents, especially to the ones that have, the rare mental affliction of not being able to see what is in front of them.

            You most certainly are. It's unfortunate that we don't have an emoticon for 'woefully misinformed.'

    once again at the center of a national debate.
    I continue to be amazed at the concern expressed about US health, well-being and policies - by those who live far, far away from North America.

    The biggest cost in healthcare is government intervention.
