HealthShare launches pre-consult tool that converts patient data into clinical note

Digital health company HealthShare has gone live with a new pre-consultation clinical questionnaire platform that takes a patient's medical history and symptom list, codes the text into medical terms and then converts it into bullet points that are directly entered into a doctor's clinical notes.

Called BetterConsult, the technology is now live in Best Practice Premier and there are plans for integrations with the other GP clinical software solutions, but it is also suitable for specialist doctors and allied health professionals, with the potential for it to be used for triage in hospital emergency departments being considered.

It is also currently being considered for the massive US market where the documentation burden is legendary, but HealthShare CEO Rami Weiss said it would be suitable globally for any clinician who needs to take a medical history and conduct a consult more efficiently. His team is working on adding more languages, so a patient can fill out the questionnaire in their primary language but the doctor will still receive the output in English.

I just had a chat with BP support on how to activate/get the BetterConsult to work and no one has any idea what I'm talking about. I'm sending them a link to this article.
