The potential power of the usage of artificial intelligence (AI), a computer program that is capable of making intelligent decisions in healthcare, is enormous and undeniable. The emergence of AI in the healthcare system results in its consequences for healthcare delivery. Also, its involvement in health services management, drug prediction, patient illness diagnosis, and usefulness in clinical decision-making, as well as this article's emphasis on its value in optimizing medication adherence and its efficacy. Machines can take over humans in the near future. Artificial intelligence has become a major threat in healthcare, with its impact expanding across the health sector. Healthcare providers must take steps to address this issue. Artificial intelligence-enabled decision support systems can help improve patient safety by detecting errors, patient stratification, and drug management.
