Will AI Work for Diagnostic Medicine?

Michael A. Cassidy, Esq., mcassidy@tuckerlaw.com, (412) 594-5515

A recent Wall Street Journal article in their “The Future of Everything” commentary stream discusses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to “tap the treasure trove of information locked in electronic health records to treat people in real time”.

An interesting concept.  Not all that long ago this would have been disparaged as “cookie-cutter medicine”.  Now it is being touted as being able to generate a report summarizing how “thousands of patients just like you were treated in the past”.

The conflict obviously has not been eliminated.  Obviously, research of this nature could keep somebody from a making serious mistake, but it could also be a serious mistake to use the law of averages as your sole diagnostic tool.
