A recent report revealed that 82% of health facilities plan to provide intensive care, subsidized by default, to meet the shortage of manpower. 
According to the Future Health Index report, the planned investments in artificial intelligence focused during the next three years in the field of increasing support for critical medical decision-making by 39% in 2023. 
Other investments in AI focus on increasing operational efficiency, including documentation, patient scheduling and routine task performance, by 37%.  
With healthcare adopting new settings to reduce staffing pressure, 70% of healthcare leaders say virtual care has a significant impact on improving patients' condition or morale.
82% of healthcare leaders say their facilities currently offer subsidized intensive or critical care by default or plan to do so in the next three years.
Virtual care also plays a vital role in attracting and retaining talent, with 44% of younger healthcare professionals indicating that new care delivery models that bridge different care settings are a top priority for them when choosing a workplace.
In this regard, the Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Beirut Arab University, Ahmed Al-Tassa, said in his interview with "Sky News Arabia":
• Artificial intelligence has become available in many sectors.
• In the health field, artificial intelligence will reduce reliance on the workforce in medical staff and home care.
• But, on the other hand, it will provide new opportunities in the field that links the health and technological professions, such as analysts of this technology, those who manage it, those who monitor it, and those who develop it. 
• Artificial intelligence in the western world may be a solution to the shortage of doctors.
