Thanks to digital services, patients can receive referrals for diagnostic examinations on average 10 times faster.
In city polyclinics there is a support system for making medical decisions. It has several digital tools based on an artificial intelligence model and clinical treatment protocols. The service helps therapists make a preliminary diagnosis and gives recommendations on referring the patient to additional laboratory and instrumental examinations. Since the beginning of its work, artificial intelligence has helped doctors write out more than 470 thousand directions for diagnostics.
“The medical decision support system is a unique project, as it is used on such a large scale only in Moscow. Today the system works in all adult clinics in the city. This is an example of how you can use artificial intelligence technologies, knowledge and experience of experts in their fields and ultimately create products for doctors they can trust. Thanks to this approach, doctors are actively using it – with the help of a digital assistant, more than 470 thousand directions for research have already been discharged to confirm the preliminary diagnosis, ”the press service of the Moscow social development complex said.
The decision support system helps the therapist in his work, but does not replace him – the final decision in each case remains with the physician.
The digital assistant allows you to reduce the average time of the appointment of diagnostic examinations by 10 times. The development of such services reduces the number of routine tasks of the doctor, who can concentrate on communicating with the patient: pay attention to important details in the anamnesis and ask more clarifying questions at the appointment. The neural network also allows you to avoid duplication of an already assigned study and to see deviations from the norm that should be paid attention to.
Two million preliminary diagnoses were made by Moscow therapists using a neural network Digital clinic: how technology helps doctors and patients
The development of a medical decision support system began in June 2019, and in the fall of 2020, the service began operating in all adult clinics in the city. It is based on clinical protocols created by leading Moscow specialists together with federal experts based on clinical guidelines and international standards.
The neural network has become one of the elements of a unified digital platform for the capital’s health care, developed jointly by the city complex for social development and Department of Information Technology.
