Clinical note creation, binning, and artificial intelligence

This brief viewpoint article by Deliberato et al. looks at the state of note taking in electronic health records (EHRs) and proposes that EHR developers look to artificial intelligence (AI) components to improve note taking and other tasks in their software. Not only would AI improve note taking, they argue, but “AI would provide helpful suggestions to the user about what information is available and how it might influence the next course of action. AI could also function to emphasize or deemphasize certain elements of the record, based on previous results, external databases, and knowledge networks.”
