The following is an excerpt from Becker's Healthcare Review.
Generative AI such as ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence-based chatbot developed by OpenAI, is being touted as a tool that can revolutionize healthcare, and although it is pretty new, hospitals and health systems are working on piloting this technology to see if it can be applied to the clinical setting.
Here are four hospitals and health systems piloting, testing or deploying the new technology:
- Palo Alto, Calif.-based Stanford Health Care said it plans to roll out its ChatGPT-like feature for physicians next week. The organization is rolling out Microsoft's generative artificial intelligence platform from OpenAI that is integrated into Epic's MyChart patient portal so that it can draft messages for clinicians.
- UC San Diego Health and Madison, Wis.-based UW Health are among the first healthcare organizations to pilot a new integration from Epic Systems and Microsoft that uses Azure OpenAI to draft messages within the EHR to patients.
- Boston Children's told Becker's that the organization is hiring a prompt engineer to work on large language models such as ChatGPT. The person will help Boston Children's design and develop prompts to effectively gather data from generative AI programs and refine the models for healthcare-specific applications.

Rick touches on a good point with his comment. Ever since Snowden exposed the early developments with Prism, people have felt uncomfortable about open discussion. With the addition of AI, electronic discussions are even more vulnerable to recording, qualitative analysis, and unwarranted visits.
Sharyl, your column and its content are invaluable, but they exist as a shiny lure for fed traps of the people coming in and out of your house.
Expect fewer and fewer open commentary in the future, as the paranoia spreads. No fewer readers, just fewer responses in the open.
