China’s first smart hospital featuring artificial intelligence has opened in Guangzhou, reports ycwb.com.
Before patients arrive at the hospital, artificial intelligence (AI) can help patients with recommendations, make appointment and payments through the WeChat account of the Guangdong Second Provincial General Hospital.
A smart diagnosis system also helps doctors prescribe medications.
AI reduces the time of patient inquiries by as much as 50%, and can diagnose around 90% of illnesses that are treated at community clinics, according to the hospital’s deputy chief Li Guanming.
Li says they are drafting a guideline on AI application for all major hospitals in Guangdong Province.
The 2018 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference is scheduled for April 8 to 11 in Boao, Hainan Province. The forum will be themed "An Open and Innovative Asia for a World of Greater Prosperity."
