The Future Is Here: AI-Generated Radiology Reports Go Live at Hardin Memorial Health

The Future Is Here: AI-Generated Radiology Reports Go Live at Hardin Memorial health computer screen with AI software runningHardin Memorial Health in Elizabethtown, Ky., has become the first health system to implement IBM Watson Health Imaging’s artificial intelligence-powered software, Patient Synopsis. The program, trained by radiologists, integrates with and draws information from a health system’s existing platforms, including picture archiving and communication systems and the electronic health record, to compile information into a single-page summary, organized into 12 categories. Patient Synopsis does this within seconds and is a glimpse into the potential AI can have on aggregating and synthesizing large amounts of disparate and complex data so that caregivers can make better informed decisions. Jesse Bryant, the first physician to use the system at Hardin, says, “It gives us broader situational awareness that will help us make even better patient decisions and it does it in a single view.”
