Benefits of an AI-Based Patient Appointments service for Hospitals by @msharmas


One of the areas where AI can be implemented in the Hospital with high volume of transactions, is the Appointments Scheduling of Patients. On any given day, there are a finite number of slots available for a doctor, e.g. 10 min or 30 min slots, depending on whether its a first visit or a follow up visit. In most hospitals, Routine patients are scheduled in advance and some patients are scheduled based on an urgency, to the physician schedule.  [Denton et al - 8]
A typical workflow for booking an appointment can go like this:

1. Patient calls (or visits) the hospital, and speaks to the person at the reception, at a specific department
2. The person looks up the available time slots, that a doctor is free and available in the clinic
3. Consults with the Patient on the best time possible for her appointment and then schedules the appointment

  • The word constrain means “to control or limit something” (Cambridge Online  Dictionary)

  • SNOMED CT makes extensive use of refsets (reference sets), for a wide-range  of purposes, each of which have specific purposes

  • Refsets need to conform to certain specific rules and guidelines regarding their
preparation, distribution and maintenance
  • Takes a long time to design one and the designing entity needs to have a
 namespace assigned to it
  • This makes the rapid and effective use of SNOMED CT in individual systems  cumbersome at best and impractical at worst
