AI medical capabilities show accuracy in clinical decision making


A striking new study from Mass General Brigham revealed that ChatGPT is nearly 72 percent accurate in making medical decisions, including identifying possible diagnoses and final care decisions. 

The study was conducted by asking the chatbot to determine a possible diagnosis for 36 standardized "clinical vignettes." The A.I. bot was able to determine a medical diagnosis accurately about 72 percent of the time, based on the patient's symptoms and personal medical information. Researchers found that ChatGPT performed best in making final diagnosis, where it was 77 percent accurate.
