Oracle’s new GenAI tool, the Clinical Digital Assistant, is changing healthcare by making record-keeping easier and improving patient care.

Oracle is making a big leap in healthcare technology with its new generative AI tool, the Clinical Digital Assistant. Revealed at Oracle’s health conference in Las Vegas, this GenAI tool is being added to Oracle’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. It’s designed to lighten the load for healthcare professionals by automating some of their routine tasks, enabling them to focus more on patient care.

The healthcare industry can be a bit hesitant when it comes to embracing new technologies. Oracle’s GenAI assistant comes as a welcome innovation, especially in light of the growing shortage of healthcare workers. It helps with managing patient records and other administrative tasks, easing the strain on medical staff.

Oracle’s GenAI assistant transforms how doctors interact with patient information. Instead of navigating through various screens, clinicians can simply use voice or text commands to quickly access patient data, such as medical histories or current medications. This approach not only saves time but also keeps the doctor’s attention on the patient.1

This GenAI tool isn’t just for healthcare providers – it also makes things easier for patients. It assists with tasks like scheduling appointments and handling payments, and provides a reliable source for medical information, responding to questions in an easy-to-understand manner. Oracle plans to fully integrate these features into its EHR systems over the next 12 months. This move represents a substantial leap forward in improving healthcare interactions through GenAI.
