Leveraging AI for Improved Public Health: An Optimized Evidence Horizon Scanning Approach

Scott Mahoney of The Health Foundation of South Africa will create an application that combines human expertise with AI technology to produce clinical recommendations from published medical evidence to be used as a decision-support tool for healthcare professionals in low- and middle-income countries. Currently, producing guidelines and support tools relies on manual reading and synthesis by individual clinicians or editorial teams, which is time consuming and can lead to biased coverage. The application will use ChatGPT-4 and be able to analyze text-based medical evidence in various formats, extract relevant clinical recommendations, and formulate clinician-validated clinical decision support algorithms for frontline healthcare workers in near-real time. This will improve the speed, accuracy, and inclusivity of decision-making. They will validate the application by comparing its performance with recommendations provided by their clinical editorial team.
