The doctor is out, but it's OK. ChatGPT can answer your questions

April 29, 2023

The research team behind the study set out to answer the question: Can ChatGPT respond accurately to the types of questions patients send to their doctors? The result is a large and diverse set of patient medical questions and accompanying answers from licensed medical professionals. The panel of healthcare professional evaluators preferred ChatGPT responses to physician responses almost 80% of the time. Additionally, ChatGPT responses were rated significantly higher in quality than physician responses: Good or very good quality responses were 3.6 times higher for ChatGPT than physicians (physicians 22.1% versus ChatGPT 78.5%). "We aren't proposing that we build AI doctors, but our results suggest that doctors could be more effective when aided by AI."
