It’s unavoidable that people living in a small rural area donot have access to big institutions of medicine, available in big urbancenters. Although the doctors’ knowledge in a big hospital and small hospitalmay not differ, patients lack the number of expertise available and may be”deprived of the up-to-date knowledge housed in the nation’s leading medicalcenters” (Park, 2017).
Lack of financial ability also limits the kind of carethat is available to a patient. According to Medical Expenditure Panel Surveyby the US Department of Health & Human Services, 10.5% of Americansexperienced difficulty in obtaining necessary medical care (2014). Why shouldpatients’ demographic factors affect their access to medical care? Who deems itfair that a patient only has access to one particular doctor’s knowledge whentechnology can enable the knowledge of thousands of experts in the field? Ifartificial intelligence and machine learning can solve these problems globalhealth, then why should we limit the access of fair and equal health care ofeveryone?
