EClinicalWorks will integrate its EHR/PM solutions with ChatGPT, cognitive services, and machine learning models from Azure OpenAI Service.

Microsoft and Epic announce that they will work together to bring generative AI into Epic’s applications via Azure OpenAI Service. UC San Diego Health, UW Health, and Stanford Health Care are already using an initial solution that automatically drafts message responses. Another solution will add natural language queries and interactive data analysis to Epic’s SlicerDicer self-service reporting tool.


A recent Stanford computer science graduate creates HealthGPT, a test case for connecting generative AI to Apple Health data to support answering user questions, such as, “How should I train for a half marathon?”



University of Florida Health researchers are working with Nuance and its Precision Imaging Network to create and fine-tune AI solutions for radiologists, specifically in the areas of interpretation reporting and ensuring that algorithms perform effectively.

Carnegie Mellon researchers develop an Internet-connected OpenAI tool that correctly developed a plan to synthesize ibuprofen, aspirin, and aspartame and to control the lab technology required to manufacture them. They also had the system develop a new cancer drug that was not tested. The authors warn that such a system is promising, but could be used to create illegal drugs or bioweapons. Not surprisingly, they also credit ChatGPT for creating the first draft of the article.


A survey of 1,039 adults finds that 20% have experienced healthcare enhanced by AI, with younger patients making up the bulk of that group. Nearly half believe the use of AI in healthcare to be somewhat or very trustworthy.

Starting July 5, New York City will begin enforcing a law that requires employers to disclose the use of automated employment decision tools to job candidates during the hiring process. Companies that wish to use such AI-based tools must first have them audited for bias by the city’s Department of Consumer and Worker Protection.

Elon Musk creates X.AI Corp., a company rumored to be an eventual competitor with OpenAI, which Musk co-founded in 2015 and left three years later to avoid conflicts of interest with Tesla.
