ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence chatbot created by OpenAI that can be used to improve content creation and transformation automation while providing a fast and engaging user experience. With the recent uproar over the usage of ChatGPT and witnessing the advancement of AI in today’s digital age, I began to wonder how it can affect the healthcare industry. I recently read an article published by Forbes, What ChatGPT And Other AI Tools Mean For The Future Of Healthcare by Sahil Gupta, and it explained the role of ChatGPT in the medical field and how it can transform healthcare.

“ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence chatbot created by OpenAI, demonstrated that it was capable of passing all three parts of the USMLE without supplementary medical training. The USMLE’s passing threshold is approximately 60%. ChatGPT achieved over 50% accuracy across all examinations and surpassed 60% in most.”

In today’s ever-changing and data-heavy society, we can expect that technology is going to be one step ahead of us. With this change and convenience, I believe that AI will play an even more significant role in healthcare and make it accessible to the community. While AI cannot replace a licensed medical professional, it certainly can provide answers that are comprehensible to reduce a trip to their PCP.

The article lists a few ways AI will be able to improve the quality, affordability, and accessibility of care.

1. Decision Support

“Much of medicine is algorithm-based, taking into account factors such as patient medical history, risk factors, symptoms and test results to help make informed decisions about care.”

While medical professionals may be able to prescribe suitable medication for you, AI will be able to assist them with valuable data to use in diagnosis and treatment. A human eye cannot see all, but AI can detect the smallest detail to ensure you are given the right treatment and expand affordable quality healthcare to communities in need.

2. Administrative Support

“AI tools are capable of taking over many of these functions and allowing physicians to spend their time on patient-centered tasks.”

While administrative paperwork can be tedious and time-consuming, with the help of AI, these processes can take a shorter time than expected to be done. Instead of having a receptionist cross reference the kind of coverage one may get, AI can immediately provide you with a list of benefits your healthcare covers. Giving medical professionals enough time to proceed with alternative treatments that are suited to your health insurance.

3. Treatment Support

“AI provides the opportunity to make treatment plans more personalized based on patient data.”

With the infinite data that AI collects, it can break down the treatments that are suitable for a specific patient. With the help of AI, medical professionals are given a list of treatments that can both help the patient and not break the patient’s bank. This not only ensures the right treatment is provided but also ensures that the community receives treatment that is relevant to their case.

As an innovative transformational healthcare leader, it is my duty to accept that change is all around us and that it is for the greater good. The next step is implementing this change and giving back to the community. I want to utilize resources that are available to help empower others in their efforts and accelerate new technologies.

“AI is creating the path forward, and we should be excited about where it will lead.”
