  • 📲 AI Apps for medical dictation and coding

Thanks for letting us crash your inbox; let’s party. 🎉

Oh yeah, and while you may be familiar with Deepgram’s speech-to-text API, you might want to check out our upcoming text-to-speech technology as well 🥳

🧑‍🔬 AI and the Medical Research Landscape

Artificial Intelligence for Drug Discovery: Are we there yet? - Generative chemistry is a budding and successful region of generative AI. But how competent are ML models at pharmaceutical chemistry? Find out here!

The AI Roadmap – charting our future in healthcare communications - The Healthcare Communications Association said that a concrete and unified AI policy is pivotal to establish in the world of healthcare. However, it is also “important to emphasize that these policies are not meant to instill fear, but rather to establish guardrails that protect the company and its clients.” To see what those guardrails are, click the link above!

“As we move towards embedding AI within our businesses, it is crucial to establish key principles that will guide your own company’s journey.”

Healthcare Communications Association, January 2024

The imperative for regulatory oversight of large language models (or generative AI) in healthcare - This paper argues that “regulatory oversight should assure medical professionals and patients can use LLMs without causing harm or compromising their data or privacy.” As such, the authors give practical recommendations for what the healthcare industry can expect from regulators.

🐎 AI Doctors and What NLP says about your mental health

Are there going to be robot, AI powered doctors? - In the video above Scott and Susan discuss what the AI Utopia will look like. And it turns out that part of that utopia may be AI Doctors. To learn more, either watch the podcast or click the link to read all about it!

LLMs, NLP, and NLU: What your words say about your mental health - From schizophrenia to clinical depression, it turns out NLP can aid in mental health diagnosis. All it takes is a bit of linguistic analysis and some powerful technology. Learn more inside!

🎥 Using AI to take the MCAT?

In this video, we see how effective AI can be at studying for one of the most difficult exams in the world: The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). This is the test that determines whether a student is qualified for medical school. To see how much AI can improve your score, check out the video! (Or this blog 😊)

🐝 Social media buzz

Here’s what Twitter is saying about the intersection of AI and medicine:

🧭 AI Apps in the world of Medicine

ScribeBerry is an AI medical dictation+transcription tool that cuts charting time by 60-70%. It is completely HIPAA and PIPEDA compliant for data privacy and security. Not to mention, it auto-generates detailed SOAP notes, medical letters, patient summaries, and more in seconds using simple voice dictation or text input!

Codio is an AI-powered medical coding assistant designed to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of coding in healthcare organizations, ambulatory centers, and Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) companies. It is built to reduce the time-consuming and error-prone aspects of medical coding, thereby saving time and resources for healthcare providers. Learn more at the link above!
