“Steve, I think in the near future, patients will need to be informed when doctors refuse to use AI—not WHEN they’re using it.”
The “Red Hot” candor of today’s guest, Dr. Robert Pearl. One of the most outspoken advocates for the use of generative artificial intelligence in healthcare. He pulls no punches when he states that ChatGPT and other generative AI tools will be as essential to medical practice as the stethoscope has been for centuries!
It’s another sizzling episode of Red Hot Healthcare, where we delve into cutting-edge topics, widely-felt challenges, and the latest innovation in healthcare.
