Abstract

Healthcare costs in the U.S. are described. The potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) coupled with Telemedicine is reviewed as alternatives to addressing healthcare costs as well as its impact on delivery of care. Obstacles to widespread use of Expert Systems, Fuzzy Logic, and Neural Net technologies are described. AI, coupled with delivery of healthcare at a distance (Telemedicine) is considered. In particular, Telerehabilitation (neuromuscular reeducation) is shown to impact enhanced treatment, lower cost, and greater access to professional consultation.
