Microsoft and Google have recently introduced new features for their healthcare cloud products, aiming to consolidate data from diverse sources such as EHRs, labs, revenue cycles, and more. This integration will enable healthcare organizations to derive insights from various datasets or establish standardized processes.
- Google Cloud has launched new capabilities in Vertex AI Search for healthcare and life sciences organizations. This feature allows them to use medically-tuned generative AI to search a broad spectrum of data, including clinical sources like FHIR data and clinical notes.
- Microsoft has introduced industry-specific healthcare solutions in Fabric. This tool allows organizations to merge data from standalone applications. The healthcare data solutions in Fabric, currently in preview mode, simplify the process by eliminating the costly and lengthy task of integrating disparate health data sources.
- Google’s Vertex AI, when paired with Med-PaLM 2, can elevate healthcare by allowing clinicians to inquire about a patient’s condition and medical history without sifting through notes. This capability can save significant time and potentially reduce clinical burnout.
- Helen Waters, EVP and COO of MEDITECH, mentioned that they have already integrated Google Health’s search and summarization capabilities into their Expanse EHR and are exploring how Vertex AI Search can further empower providers and patients.
