New EMIS system will listen to and ‘interpret’ GP-patient conversations


Unusually I think that this could be good. It will be useful to have a recording of the consultation. This can help to defend us from some of the wilder complaints and accusations. The interpretation will be poor speech recognition to start with. The hope that is placed in AI is quite deluded, and demonstrates such a lack of awareness of the healthcare process that it suggests a high degree of contempt for what we do.
