Together is the first app to use generative AI to make cumbersome healthcare tasks ‘magically easy’
Dr. Renee Dua and Nick Desai — who previously founded and built visionary doctor house call company Heal — introduced Together by Renee (@togetherbyrenee), the first app to use generative AI to complete and manage cumbersome healthcare tasks for aging adults, those with chronic diseases and their overwhelmed caregivers. Together requires no typing or data entry and uses just the smartphone camera and AI to “magically” remove the myriad obstacles — such as medication refills, scheduling appointments, complex forms, opaque insurance benefits and more — that stand between Americans over 50 and better health outcomes.
AI Offers Hope to People Suffering From Lyosomal Storage Disease – By InnoNurse Staff (@innonurse) – In drug discovery research, artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly crucial. Researchers at the University of Zurich (UZH) have been able to better comprehend a deadly metabolic disorder due to advances in Big Data, learning algorithms, and powerful computers.
Generative AI: Pulling Back the Curtain– By John Halamka, M.D. & Paul Cerrato, Mayo Clinic Platform (@MayoPlatform) – As the name implies, a large language model (LLM) uses massive amounts of data, and in the case of text documents, can learn all sorts of linguistic patterns and associations to create a deep knowledge base to draw on. That in turn enables the model to make logical predictions on which words, sentences, and paragraphs should follow one another. Nigam Shah, M.D., a Professor of Medicine and Biomedical Data Science at Stanford University, has provided a lucid explanation of how these digital tools work in a recent video.
