As healthcare advances, so does the complexity of conditions and treatments. But as the global population lives longer, doctors’ time to translate increasingly complex clinical notes diminishes.

This is where generative AI can relieve some of the pressure. Its advanced algorithms bring years of clinical data to the fore in seconds. With sentiment analysis tools built-in, it takes this complex information and summarizes it for patients in a conversational tone so they can understand their treatments comfortably.

Let’s look at generative AI in healthcare and how the latest chatbots can help patients feel confident in understanding and completing their treatment plans.
