Microsoft is applying the GPT-4 large language model to its healthcare cloud services

Microsoft has not only begun to apply the GPT-4 large language model to its Bing search and Microsoft 365 services but is also expanding its use in the services of Nuance Communications, which it acquired for $19.7 billion last year, in order to expand its medical application development.

The service, called “Dragon Ambient eXperience Express” (DAX Express), will use Nuance Communications’ voice recognition technology in combination with OpenAI’s GPT-4 large language model to analyze the content of a physician’s explanations during the diagnosis process, and quickly list the key points so that subsequent treatment and care work can be more efficiently allocated.

By using the GPT-4 large language model for analysis, the “Dragon Ambient eXperience Express” service will be able to more easily understand medical terms and specific academic content related to the medical process.

At the same time, this service will be integrated into the Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare application project and will be operated on the Azure cloud platform, claiming to be able to summarize up to 4 hours of clinical records in seconds.

Microsoft plans to allow cooperating hospitals to use this service in closed testing form this summer. The specific pricing plan for the service and the scope of its application have not yet been announced.
