    CMOG/GFP Joint Webinar on Generative AI in Healthcare: Early Experience with Language Models at Stanford

    December 1, 2023

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools represent a large opportunity to streamline clinical workflows and reduce provider burden, but much of AI work remains academic vs. operational. During this webinar sponsored by the Chief Medical Officers’ Group (CMOG) and the Group on Faculty Practice (GFP), participants heard from Stanford, and their recent work in AI. The first presenter, Dr. Nigam Shah, focused on AI governance as well as the strategy and goals of the Data Science Team at Stanford Health Care (SHC). Our second presenter, Dr. Patricia Garcia, shared Stanford’s success and challenges around recent pilot applications, specifically ones that draft patient message responses and post-patient-session notes. Given that electronic messages are a leading cause of clinician burnout, CMOG and GFP members are especially interested in these pilots as potential opportunity to reduce physician administrative time and cognitive burden.
