UCSF Health digital chief departs for healthcare AI company

Aaron Neinstein, MD, the former vice president of digital health at San Francisco-based UCSF Health, has left the health system to join healthcare artificial intelligence company Notable.

He will become chief medical officer at Notable, which uses AI to automate workflows such as scheduling, referrals, authorizations, registration and intake. The company's health system partners include Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Health, Charleston, S.C.-based MUSC Health and North Kansas City (Mo.) Hospital.

"As artificial intelligence hits an inflection point with the rise of large language models, I see a unique opportunity to have a massive, positive impact on the lives of millions of patients and caregivers," Dr. Neinstein wrote in a July 11 news release shared with Becker's. "Technology can be used to handle the mundane, burdensome tasks that no one likes doing, augmenting and supporting patients and providers, allowing them to focus on building real, human relationships."

Dr. Neinstein was also senior director of the Center for Digital Health Innovation at UCSF and has directed clinical informatics for the health system.
