A not inconsiderable skill is having enough knowledge to know what it “isn’t” and providing that reassurance.
Good luck with that in some parts of the country...https://youtu.be/XQCHoKAq9xA
Before expanding into chronic disease management, how about improving the current offering...this doctor posts amusing chat bot diagnoses videos. Well, it would be amusing if it wasn’t being actively used by patients. Only a matter of time before a serious clinical incident. https://mobile.twitter.com/drmurphy11?lang=en
Why can’t they simply stick with applying the Bolam principle? Is far more likely to take into account the pragmatism of real life general practice.
It's interesting that Babylon have published their own paper again, why is it not being published in a peer reviewed journal? Why did they claim yesterday that their AKT performance was 81% when in actual fact, according to their own paper, it appears that they counted a "correct" answer if it appeared in their top 3 differentials? I expect the GP pass mark would be higher than 72% if that was how the AKT worked in reality. New funding round due perhaps? https://marketing-assets.babylonhealth.com/press/BabylonJune2018Paper_Version1.4.2.pdf
Two of the practice partners are also medical directors at Babylon. Seems reasonable.
