“AI, including chatbots, are revolutionizing healthcare and making it smarter and more efficient. Chatbots, in particular, are like having a personal healthcare concierge, always available to assist you with your healthcare needs, and with a touch of wit and charm. With the power of AI behind them, they can triage patients, reducing the burden on overworked healthcare professionals, and even assist in personalized medicine, drug discovery and population health management. They're the ultimate healthcare game-changer, turning the traditional healthcare model on its head and making it more accessible, accurate and convenient for everyone.”
All that, and more—AI chatbots can also apparently write “a pithy paragraph about how AI and chatbots can revolutionize healthcare.” Yep, the above was written by ChatGPT* (did the reference to a “touch of wit and charm” regarding a theoretically non-sentient being tip you off?)—and there’s undoubtedly more to come. A recent study showed that ChatGPT “performed at or near the passing threshold” for all three U.S. Medical Licensing exams without any specialized training, which could push its possibilities even further. While there’s still a ways to go before AI truly revolutionizes healthcare, these recent strides are starting to make it feel like the future may be sooner than we think.
