Chinese MedGPT claims high practical diagnostic accuracy
Chinese digital healthcare company Medlinker recently set out to check the accuracy of the medical large-scale language model on its MedGPT service by comparing its diagnostic capability with human doctors.
Introduced in May this year, MedGPT offers intelligent diagnosis and treatment capabilities, providing practical diagnostic value in real medical scenarios. It can also diagnose diseases outside its field of expertise and suggest treatment plans based on other clinical observations and factors.
Its live evaluation involved 120 patients and ten doctors from West China Hospital, Sichuan University.
Based on the review of their results by seven doctors from major Chinese hospitals, human doctors scored 7.5 out of 10 on average while MedGPT was graded 7.2. The recommendations provided by MedGPT were found to be 96% as good as the human doctors.
