Tools of artificial intelligencel, technology applied to the medical office, algorithms, diagnostic imaging and digitized medical records are some of the many decisive elements both in the diagnosis and the treatment of a patient as in medical work. The paradox is that this exponential growth in the incidence of technology and of the scientific advances should be translated into increasingly humanized medical care.
It is in this sense that the bioengineering provides the ability to give answers because he knows how to link the understanding of the biological and medical phenomena with the application of engineering tools. In this way he achieves solve problemsalways taking into account people, that is, the impact of technology on them.

This vital combination materializes in the personalized medicinefor which patients are not the illness but they have a disease and, therefore, they are treated according to their own particularities, seeking to make a “tailored suit” and not wearing them in a uniform garment.
Esa precision medicine you need yes or yes of the technology. Also in what is known as translational medicinewhich translates the knowledge and discoveries of basic research and brings them closer to the patient as soon as possible.
To be up to the opportunities that we have at hand today, it is essential to train interdisciplinary teams that dialogue both with technology and engineering as well as with medicine and medical care. Thus, solutions to problems of diagnosis and treatment of diseases From a scientific and technological point of view promoting an increasingly humanized treatment.
When this works, there is a synergy between research and problem solving that has an impact on patients, institutions and health professionals. A concrete demonstration: in the midst of the pandemic, we created the modelo COVID-19 Severity Indexand predictive alarm system possible to use in any hospital and that allowed to classify the severity of the pictures and prioritize human resources, increasing nursing controls in the most serious cases and reducing them in the mildest. In this way, nursing overload was avoided and the system was able to predict 24 hours in advance the transfer to intensive therapy.

Thus, the bioengineering is in focus with innovation and the development that Artificial intelligencea field of computing that is constantly growing and that, among other things, allows speed up times especially in tasks and processes of diagnosing injuries, patterns and pathologies, even in places where there is no specialist in the field. Also with the analysis of large volumes of information.
Las digital medical recordsfor example, generate a huge amount of data that is a real goldmine for research, but they involve the challenge of knowing how to be read. in that too Bioengineering is key.
In short, technology, algorithms and machines complement medical work and guarantee the fundamental objective of giving you a better well-being for patients in prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
