Medical Information from Chatbot Shows Quality, Empathy

Responses from ChatGPT rate higher for quality and empathy, according to a study in JAMA Internal Medicine. Licensed health care professionals assessed the responses to 200 medical questions from a public online forum. ChatGPT scored 21% higher than doctors for the quality of responses and 41% higher on empathy. Responses from ChatGPT were typically much longer, which could affect perceptions of quality and empathy. (Source: CNN, D. McPhillips, 4.28.23)

CDC to Stop Tracking Community COVID

The CDC will stop tracking community COVID numbers after May 11 when the public health emergency expires. The CDC will monitor COVID by tracking hospitalizations, similar to the way the agency tracks influenza. However, hospitalizations are a late signal, as opposed to an early warning. Wastewater testing will remain in place as a sentinel. Doctors will still have to report cases to public health officials, but the frequency of reporting may decrease. (Source: CNN, B.
