ChatGPT for Health Care

ChatGPT for Health Care

The debate has been solved, ChatGPT is a better general physician than your general physician. A study conducted by John W. Ayers, Adam Poliak, and Mark Dredze, and published in JAMA Intern Med. the 28th of April 2023, basically concluded with that you should replace your doctor with ChatGPT. You can read the whole report below.

The key question the study tried to answer was "Can an artificial intelligence chatbot assistant, provide responses to patient questions that are of comparable quality and empathy to those written by physicians?" The conclusion was.

The chatbot responses were preferred over physician responses and rated significantly higher for both quality and empathy.

The study had 195 participants, and the conclusion was that not only did the chatbot score significantly higher on accuracy, but it also scored significantly higher on empathy. Below are the figures compared against each other.

AI is The Future of Medicine

This implies that already as of today, an AI-based chatbot, such as our ChatGPT chatbot, can literally outperform a trained doctor on all parameters of importance. Combined with AI Website Search and our AI Expert Systems, a machine learning algorithm could probably also more accurately diagnose and prescribe the correct medicine than your doctor.

I remember when Gary Kasparov lost to deep blue. He raged and initially claimed that IBM had cheated and that one of the moves was in fact done by a human Chess Grand Master. Today we take it for granted that machines outperforms humans on chess, and no human chess player seriously believe they're able to outperform Stock Fish or other chess engines.

Gary Kasparov and Deep Blue

We always thought that the "boring jobs" would be the first jobs to be replaced by machines, manual jobs that is, such as your local waiter, or your gardener. It seemed to be such an obvious conclusion. Positions requiring high intelligence and a lot of knowledge, such as a PhD in medicine seemed from our point of view to be the last jobs to be replaced by machines. Now we know it's the exact opposite. Jobs requiring an extreme amount of knowledge and expertise are actually the first jobs to be replaced by AI and Machine Learning systems.

Empathic Machines

The most surprising finding in the study was probably that the machine was more empathic than your doctor. Empathy has kind of been the one thing we humans have always believed we were pretty good at. Of course, for anyone having visited a doctor, this finding is probably not that surprising. A general physician today barely have time at all to ask questions to his patients - While a chatbot has "all the time in the world". I suspect that this might be the reason why ChatGPT outperformed physicians, since empathy is a requirement to be able to accurately diagnose and prescribe the correct medicine. Implying ...

If physicians were more empathic, they would become more accurate. If physicians had more time, they would become more empathic. So time is the only problem you have to solve actually!

Well, we just so happen to have a solution that gives your physicians more time ... 😁

Get started with ChatGPT for Health Care

If you're interested in getting started with ChatGPT for medical care, we'd love to talk to you. The fear has always been that AI and machines cannot deliver the same quality as human beings. This assumption has now been thoroughly debunked, and AI and Machine Learning are contrary to this assumption actually better as providing medical advise and medical care than the human being.

As long as you've got access to training data, such as diagnostic symptoms, medical libraries, etc - We can probably create a custom AI Expert System that outperforms the average physician. Of course, initially it'll probably have to be used in combination with a human physician, if for no other reason than because of potential lawsuits - But at least it would be a start for you.
