Today, we are excited to announce AWS HealthScribe, a new HIPAA-eligible service designed to help healthcare software vendors build clinical applications that automatically generate preliminary clinical notes by analyzing patient-clinician conversations. With AWS HealthScribe, you can integrate conversational and generative AI in your application to accelerate clinical documentation workflow and enhance the consultation experience: no machine learning expertise required.

AWS HealthScribe allows you to automatically generate preliminary clinical notes from consultation audio for key sections, such as reason for visit, history of present illness, assessment, and plan. AWS HealthScribe facilitates the safe use of AI in clinical settings; every sentence used in AI-generated notes comes with references to the original transcript that can be used to help users validate the accuracy of the generated summary. Users can quickly locate the most relevant aspects of the consultation transcript. AWS HealthScribe identifies speaker roles as a clinician or patient and classifies transcript dialogue into categories, such as small talk, subjective, or objective. Additionally, AWS HealthScribe extracts structured medical terms, such as medical conditions, medications, and treatments. These medical terms can be used to generate useful workflow suggestions and auto-suggest relevant data entries in clinical applications. Security and privacy are built-in, as the service does not retain inbound audio or output text.

AWS HealthScribe is available in preview in US East (N. Virginia). To access the service, visit the sign-up page. To learn more, read the blog post or visit AWS HealthScribe.
