  • On Wednesday, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a new AI-powered service for health care software providers that will help clinicians with paperwork. AWS HealthScribe uses generative AI and speech recognition to help doctors transcribe and analyze their conversations with patients and draft clinical notes. With the new service, health care software providers can use a single application programming interface (API) to build clinical applications that automatically generate preliminary clinical notes by analyzing patient-clinician conversations. The service can create transcripts, extract key details, such as medical terms and medications, and create summaries from doctor-patient discussions that can then be entered into an electronic health record (EHR) system. (Articles here and here)
