According to recent studies, ChatGPT is just as good as a medical professional at appropriately diagnosing patients and making clinical judgments.
The AI chatbot’s capacity to effectively diagnose patients and prescribe proper treatment in primary care and emergency situations was tested by researchers from Mass General Brigham in Boston, Massachusetts.
ChatGPT made the right recommendations about diagnosis, medicines, and other treatments 72% of the time. Meanwhile, experts claim that doctors are around 95% correct.
You’ve probably noticed the fact that though properly certified healthcare professionals have considerably lower chances of misdiagnosis, the researchers believe ChatGPT might make medical care more accessible and cut waiting time for visiting a doctor.
The recent case shows how AI can help defining even rare illnesses. ChatGPT was able to help a toddler whose disease was a mystery for three years. Alex ceased growing and began experiencing discomfort, shifts in mood, and sleep issues. For three years, his mother had been searching for the origin of the ailment, seeing 17 doctors ranging from a pediatrician to a dentist. As a result, mother sought assistance from ChatGPT. The AI identified an uncommon and difficult-to-diagnose condition: spinal cleave and spinal cord deformity. The diagnosis was correct, and the youngster underwent surgery. Now he is healing and his mother is finally at peace.
LLMs, in general, have the potential to be an enhancing tool for medical practice, supporting clinical decision-making with exceptional accuracy without getting tired or losing attention. It also may provide empathy and this is especially valuable due to the fact that may medical workers feel burnet out and aren’t able to be more empathetic or give enough details about certain illness.
