Houston Methodist deploys AI platform to streamline patient-provider interactions

Houston Methodist has formed an "innovation relationship" with Notable Health to connect the patient experience and provider workflows within a single artificial intelligence-powered platform, the organizations announced Oct. 22.

The platform integrates into existing EHR systems. It comprises an AI-powered, mobile-first intake assistant, along with voice-enabled wearable technology for automated documentation.

The technology allows the health system to "be more informed about a patient's unique history, automate more administrative tasks for staff and deliver superior care," Nicholas Desai, MD, Houston Methodist's chief medical information officer, said in a news release. Additionally, other physicians using the platform have reported reductions of several hours in time spent on medical paperwork.

Houston Methodist will deploy the Notable Health platform across its ambulatory clinics, beginning with orthopedics. The technology will eventually be expanded across all primary and specialty care groups.
