Generative AI Benefits: We’ve Barely Scratched the Surface – By John Halamka, M.D. & Paul Cerrato, Mayo Clinic Platform (@MayoPlatform) –  While large language models like ChatGPT, BARD, and LlaMA have their shortcomings, their impact on the healthcare community is without precedent. Equally important is the effect they have had on IT developers who want to create algorithms specifically designed for the medical profession. There are now applications that can pass the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), answer basic questions in patients’ emails, and summarize the narrative notes in an electronic medical record (EMR). But as our title suggests, this only scratches the surface. Most of the healthcare related applications that are now getting the profession’s attention rely on the ability of these chatbots to generate natural language text. But large language models (LLMs) are also capable of analyzing other types of data, including the ICD codes and timeline content in EHR records.
