Imagine a visit to your doctor's office in which your physician asks you how you've been feeling, whether your medication is working or if the shoulder pain from an old fall is still bothering you -- and his or her focus is entirely on you and that conversation. The doctor is looking at you, not at a computer screen. He or she isn't moving a mouse around hunting for an old record or pecking on the keyboard to enter a diagnosis code. This sounds like an ideal scenario, but as most people know from their own visits to the doctor, it's far from the norm today. But experts say that in an exam room of the future enhanced by artificial intelligence, the doctor would be able to call up a lab result or prescribe a new medicine with a simple voice command.
