Mayo Clinic to test new generative AI applications from Microsoft

Physicians and Other Clinical Staff Are Exploring Ways to Combine LLMs With Productivity Apps to Reduce Provider Burden

The Rochester, Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic will be an early participant in the Microsoft 365 Copilot Early Access Program – offering its clinicians and staff the ability to test artificial intelligence technology, which combines large language models with Microsoft 365 apps – calendars, emails, chats, documents and more – to enable improved productivity and reduce administrative burden.

Mayo Clinic says it’s hopeful that new and emerging generative AI applications can help its physicians and nurses automate form-filling tasks and help with other time-consuming admin work that takes focus away from patients.
