Agreed, The VA is using CCDAs today for outbound communication and they started with C32s back in 2012. Looked at…
Mayo Clinic will use Google’s low-code Enterprise Search in Generative AI App Builder to combine Google search with generative AI to provide information to clinicians and employees.
Boston Children’s Hospital, which drew recent attention for posting a job for a ChatGPT prompt engineer, tells Mashable how it may use the technology to solve real-world problems such as helping patients navigate its buildings or to create patient-specific discharge and rehabilitation instructions using their EHR data.
Wolters Kluwer Health acquires Invistics Corporation, which offers AI-enabled software for drug diversion detection.
Primary and urgent care chain Carbon Health launches hands-free AI charting across all of its clinics and providers. Appointment audio is analyzed with AWS Medical Transcribe, then processed with GPT-4 to generate an EHR-ready notes document. Early studies show that unedited accuracy is 88%, charts are 2.5 times more detailed than with manual entry, and chart completion time was reduced from 16 minutes to four. The company says it may sell the software to other provider groups.
AvaSure adds AI-powered enhancements to its TeleSitter virtual care platform in which the virtual safety attendants will be alerted when a patient who is at risk for a fall or elopement tries to sit up or leave the room. The company is partnering with Kinometrix, which applies AI predictive analytics to EHR data to identify patients with fall risk.
FDA issues 510(k) clearance for Ezra’s AI-enhanced MR images for early cancer detection, which the company says would reduce full-body MRI screening cost by 30%. The company says it hopes to offer a 15-minute, $500 full body scan versus today’s one-hour scan that costs $1,950.
LeanTaas announces a generative AI solution that gives leaders insights about patient flow, scheduling, block management, and other capacity management measures.

University of Colorado medical school researchers are studying patient experiences with AI that simulates conversation, raising questions about potential bias created by the appearance of the chatbot’s avatar and the ethics of nudging people into healthcare behaviors without restricting their choices.
Researchers find that ChatGPT provides evidence-based answers to public health questions with 91% recognition versus a cumulative 5% recognition among Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana, and Bixby. However, ChatGPT, along with the other tools, rarely offers referrals and instead gives advice. The authors conclude that public health agencies should publish a database of recommended resources that AI could use in fine-tuning its responses to refer people to vetted resources.
NYU medical school researchers describe NYUTron, a large language model they trained to on EHR notes to forecast clinical and operational event in real time with better accuracy compared to traditional methods. They tested the system at NYU Langone Health System on five predictive tasks: 30-day readmission, in-hospital mortality, co-morbidity index, length of stay, and insurance denial. The authors say that models trained on highly tailored data are more useful than using larger, less-specific datasets, but they still require a lot of computational horsepower.
Kenya-based “contract cheaters” who ghost write essays and complete assignments for students in wealthy countries worry that ChatGPT could replace them. One of them says that most of his customers are studying nursing and healthcare. A January study found that 89% of the surveyed students are using ChatGPT to help them with homework and 53% used it to write an entire essay.
South Korea is using AI-powered image analysis to assess the health of North Korea’s leaders, determining that Kim Jong Un weighs over 300 pounds, has dark circles under his eyes, and may suffer from a sleep disorder.
