Doctors Are Getting on Board With genAI, Survey Shows

Summary of article from Healthcare IT News, by Andrea Fox:

A survey of 100 US physicians revealed that 81% believe generative AI can enhance care team interactions with patients. The majority (89%) of physicians require transparency about the sources of clinical decision support (CDS) data from vendors. However, physicians overestimate patients’ readiness for AI in healthcare, with 66% believing patients would be confident in AI-assisted decisions, contrasting with 48% of patients expressing confidence. The survey also highlighted a lack of clear AI usage guidelines in healthcare organizations. Despite initial skepticism, adoption of AI in healthcare is growing, with companies like Wolter Kluwer integrating AI into their products to aid clinical decision-making.
