The solution will also enable the patients to pose different questions, that they may have via the MyOchsner patient portal, to aid them in navigating the electronic medical record.

Ochsner Health digital content and creative media assistant vice-president Amber Welch said: “Now, more than ever, it is important we take this step to improve our online experience so patients can access the care they need in a manner that is convenient and safe.

“These services are essential to our business and our ability to fulfil our commitment to making our communities healthier, especially in the wake of Covid-19.”

The AI-powered solutions are expected to mitigate the burdens on call centre teams and billing support staff and also provide better patient experience.
