Clinical entrepreneurs, computer scientists, and data scientists envision a future in which artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR) play a vital role in revolutionizing healthcare. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgent requirement for remote tools in the healthcare industry, prompting the integration of AI and AR to introduce transformative services in diagnostics, drug research, epidemiology, treatment, and administrative efficiency. However, the incorporation of these technologies into the dynamic landscape of healthcare delivery systems poses certain legal and regulatory challenges. Hence, the objective of this chapter is to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of how AI and AR synergistically enhance healthcare security and address the legal implications of digitalization.
