and how can technology alleviate them? Medical desert is a term used to describe regions whose population has inadequate access to healthcare due to geographical and economic causes, whether the lack of healthcare is general or in a specific field, such as dental or pharmaceutical.

It is primarily used to describe rural areas although it is sometimes applied to urban areas as well.

The term is inspired by the analogous concept of a food desert.

AI-infused health IT tools and telehealth can help in the areas below :

➡️️ Mobile clinics

➡️ Virtual care 24/7

➡️️ Chatbots and Telemedicine

➡️️ Remote patient monitoring 

➡️ Predictive analytics

With these solutions and the technology behind the healthcare industry can address medical deserts by understanding a community’s needs and building trust and credibility within that population
