What is Artificial Intelligence?
While seemingly a new technology, the concept and first steps towards artificial intelligence began in the 1950’s with Alan Turing. Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to the development of computer systems to learn from robust datasets to be able to function autonomously to perform a broad range of tasks. A common application is “generative AI” – which means the ability of a computer to generate unique outputs of text, images, sounds, code, etc. based on a set of instructions, or “prompts”. The quality of the artificial intelligence output is dependent on the strength of the dataset the artificial intelligence has to learn from. This is commonly referred to as machine learning or deep learning. This is used to produce a large “model” which can produce an output when prompted based on the computer’s learnings from a vast digital dataset. One example is CHAT-GPT is a large language model which has risen to prominence for its abilities in generating text. Another example would be to train a model off a dataset of images of moles. You provide the artificial intelligence pictures of 1 million moles alongside pathology results of which ones were cancerous on biopsy. The artificial intelligence learns which visual characteristics were associated with malignancy and can now be used to recognize malignant moles requiring exision on sight.
How does AI work in Arya EHR?
Arya Health revolutionizes healthcare by automating the charting process. Nabla AI is an ambient scribe that has been integrated within Arya. Imagine having an assistant in the room seated next to you and is taking notes for you as you conduct your patient appointment. When you finish talking with the patient your progress note or consultation letter is already written! This ambient scribe listens and transcribes everything being said during a patient encounter. It then takes that transcription and processes it through a large language model to generate your chart note. The outputs from that model have been trained in a variety of ways to provide different note templates. This innovation expedites documentation, allowing healthcare professionals to complete notes without having to type or dictate anything, potentially saving hours each day in practice. Arya Health’s incorporation of AI not only enhances productivity but also enables practitioners to focus more on patient care, marking a significant leap
forwards in the efficiency and effectiveness of medical practices. Watch the video below to see a walkthrough of how the AI will work with a live patient interaction.
