Abstract

We describe "Dr. A.I.", a virtual physician assistant that uses generative AI to conduct a pre-visit patient interview and to create a draft clinical note for the physician. We document the effectiveness of Dr. A.I. by measuring the concordance of the actual diagnosis made by the doctor with the generated differ-ential diagnosis (DDx) list. This application demonstrates the practical healthcare capabilities of a large language model to improve efficiency of doctor visits while also addressing safety concerns for the use of generative AI in the workflow of patient care.
