Doctors make over 430,000 diagnoses using artificial intelligence

December 13, 2020

Moscow doctors made almost 430,000 preliminary diagnoses using a service based on artificial intelligence. The algorithms cover 95 percent of diagnoses for which patients visit polyclinics.

“Digital technology is increasingly introduced into the daily practice of Moscow polyclinics. In just two months of using a unique tool based on artificial intelligence, doctors have made almost 430,000 preliminary diagnoses. The algorithm works as follows: based on patient ailment descriptions, the tool selects the three most likely diagnoses of 265 possible groups from the current list of the international classification of diseases,” said Yulia Urozhayeva, First Deputy Head of the Deputy Mayor’s Social Development Directorate.

She noted that it is up to the doctor whether to agree with a suggested diagnosis. The main advantage of this tool now is that it saves doctors the most precious resource – time, and in the future it will lead to an increase in the quality of diagnostics.

To confirm a preliminary diagnosis, a patient is sent for additional examinations or consultations with specialists. Here, another service comes to the rescue of the doctor: the app offers package prescriptions, which include a full range of necessary laboratory and instrumented examinations as well as consultations with the right specialists. Further treatment is divided into mandatory and optional treatment, which can be altered at the doctor’s discretion.

Today, the system includes package appointments for 54 groups of diagnoses, which cover up to 90 percent of visits to polyclinics. Due to the fact that appointments for all diagnostic exams and additional consultations are included in a single package, the doctor spends about 10 times fewer minutes on prescriptions.

The system was implemented at all adult polyclinics in Moscow this autumn. Moscow medical institutions are now implementing this medical decision support system. In the future, IT solutions based on artificial intelligence will be used more wildly.
