Don't Make AI Mistakes

April 15, 20234 min read

Important Considerations

Like any AI chatbot, ChatGPT has limitations. It may generate responses that are incorrect, biased, or inappropriate, as it relies on the patterns learned from large text data without external fact-checking. It may also sometimes generate overly verbose or repetitive responses. It's important to validate the information provided by ChatGPT and use human judgment to ensure its accuracy and reliability.

9 Important Considerations for AI in Functional Medicine

For those reasons, when creating content for an AI chatbot in a healthcare capacity, it's important to keep in mind some best practices. Consider the following:

1. Content relevance

The content provided by the AI chatbot should be relevant to your functional medicine practice's target audience. It should address common questions, concerns, and topics that your patients may have about their health, conditions, treatments, or other related information.

2. Accuracy and reliability

The content provided by the AI chatbot should be accurate and reliable. It should be based on evidence-based information from trusted sources, and healthcare providers should verify the information provided by the chatbot to ensure its accuracy.

3. Tone and language

The tone and language used by the AI chatbot should be appropriate for the target audience. It should be friendly, professional, and easy to understand. Avoid using medical jargon that may confuse or alienate patients.

4. Customization

Closely related to tone and language, the AI chatbot should be designed to allow for customization and personalization. As a healthcare provider, you should feel comfortable updating and modifying the content of the chatbot based on their practice's specific needs and preferences.

One way to tweak how ChatGPT responds is to tell it who its audience is. For example, you could tell ChatGPT that you are speaking to a room full of kindergarteners or to an audience of medical professionals and it will respond accordingly. As a Functional Medicine practitioner, this feature could be very helpful when you’re using ChatGPT to create content for your practice’s unique audience.

Here are examples of how ChatGPT will respond to prompts to describe healthy eating for two very different audiences:

ChatGPT response to kindergartners

ChatGPT response to educated adult

5. Compliance with regulations

The content provided by the AI chatbot should comply with relevant healthcare regulations, such as HIPAA in the United States or equivalent regulations in other countries, to ensure patient privacy and data security.

6. Integration into your practice's workflow

The AI chatbot should be integrated into your practice's workflow seamlessly. It should complement your existing healthcare services and processes, and your staff or other providers should have clear protocols on how to use and manage the chatbot and its output effectively.

7. Continuous improvement

The content of the AI chatbot should be regularly reviewed and updated to ensure its accuracy and relevance. Feedback from patients and providers should be collected and used to continuously improve the content and performance of the chatbot.

8. Pricing and licensing

Please note that ChatGPT is a commercial product developed by OpenAI and may require licensing or usage fees for certain applications. OpenAI offers different pricing tiers, including a free tier with limited access to ChatGPT and paid tiers with additional benefits and usage limits. The paid tiers typically offer higher usage limits, faster response times, and priority access to new features.

It's important to review and understand OpenAI's pricing model, terms of use, and licensing agreements to determine the costs associated with using ChatGPT for content creation in healthcare or any other application. Healthcare providers or content creators should budget and plan for potential costs associated with using ChatGPT or any other AI chatbot in their content creation strategies, and consider the cost-benefit ratio based on their specific needs and requirements.

By keeping these considerations in mind, healthcare providers can intelligently leverage this technology to enhance patient engagement, provide reliable information, and improve the overall patient experience.

ChatGPT's versatility makes it a valuable tool for functional medicine practice owners to create engaging content, deliver personalized healthcare information, and optimize patient interactions in a dynamic and evolving healthcare landscape.
