    Artificial intelligence (AI) technology innovations are predicted to drive the greatest evolutionary progress in human history, accelerating the emergence of new technology innovations and affecting the way we humans live and act. In this situation, it is important to address how we can use these technologies and service innovations enabling the beneficial impacts, possibly by exceeding the human performance levels. Despite of the importance of the AI innovations and their impact in healthcare, there is still only little advance research about long-term effects on healthcare practitioners. This paper provides a literature review looking at the AI impacts to the healthcare experts. In the paper it is shown, that the field is lacking empirical evidence, but there is an indication of positive impact through communication enhancement between physician and patient, but also possibilities for clinical and cognitive skills deterioration.
