Suki Assistant Gen 2 is an AI tool that automates clinical note creation by listening to clinician-patient interactions. It is compatible with major EHR systems and requires no human supervision.
The interaction with Suki Assistant Gen 2 is flexible. Clinicians can choose between dictation or using the ambient note generation feature. It also allows for queries about patient data like medications or allergies and provides diagnosis code suggestions. This flexibility offers clinicians the possibility to tailor their workflows according to their preferences.
Suki Assistant Gen 2 is designed to lessen the time spent on documentation, a notable factor contributing to physician burnout. By synchronizing clinical notes and ICD-10 codes with EHR systems in real time, it addresses the administrative demands of clinicians.
For example, in a hypothetical hematology setting, a hematologist could use Suki Assistant Gen 2 in a consultation concerning chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). While the hematologist discusses the patient's condition and treatment plan, Suki would automatically create the clinical notes. These notes can later be reviewed and edited by the hematologist, who can also request diagnosis code suggestions for CLL from Suki. Thus, the hematologist is able to dedicate more time to patient care, rather than administrative tasks.
In a recent study by The American Academy of Family Physicians to identify and demonstrate innovations essential to optimizing the family medicine experience, SUKI Assistant significantly reduced documentation time and burden; it provided more time, flexibility, and freedom for adopters. Clinicians were more satisfied with their notes, saying they were more meaningful and professional.
