In addition, AI-powered chatbots are used to train healthcare workers in rural villages who might not have been able to attend medical school. “[The healthcare worker] has to take care of patients with abdomen pain, chest pain and headaches, but he doesn’t know what tests to order and what tests are done in the city,” said Rehani. “This is where the chatbot can help him. This is an excellent tool that can be with the healthcare worker 24/7, 365 days.”
Another vital way the medical community is improving global health is through Health4TheWorld chapters at academic institutions around the country. These chapters are made up of faculty, residents, fellows and medical students, and they work together to solve common problems in education, technology and COVID-19-related issues.

Multiple radiology societies including RSNA, the Association of Program Directors in Radiology (APDR) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) also launched free online education for the radiology community during COVID-19, which can be used alongside other global efforts in radiology such as RSNA Global Learning Centers & CIRE, Imaging the World, and RAD-AID International.
“Technology can reach parts of the world where radiologists and physicians cannot and it can stay and help people all the time, which is really powerful,” said Rehani. “That is why all of us have to work together to design technology solutions in radiology globally.”
Radiologists can get involved by volunteering to teach online, mentoring international residents, donating personal protective equipment through nonprofit organizations, working together with Health4TheWorld on technology solutions and spreading hope.Back to HCB News
