How Amazon, Google, Microsoft are working with health systems

Hospitals and health systems continue to partner with Big Tech companies to further their digital transformations. Here are nine of those collaborations Becker's reported on in the past month.

1. In March, New York City-based NYU Langone Health requested access to Microsoft's private instances of GPT-4, the large language model that powers ChatGPT, and now has one of the first HIPAA-compliant GPT-4 ecosystems in healthcare, the health system said Aug. 18.

2. New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System, which has one of the largest production instances of Epic running on Microsoft's cloud, says the move has been able to reduce upfront infrastructure costs and accelerate its integration of artificial intelligence, its CIO told Becker's for an Aug. 17 story.

3. Renton, Wash.-based Providence is integrating generative AI into MedPearl, its clinician education and referral platform, giving primary care providers advice on whether — and where — to send patients for specialty care, its digital health chief told Becker's for an Aug. 16 story. Providence uses a closed generative AI platform from Microsoft and OpenAI, the maker of ChatGPT.

7. Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health is piloting Epic and Microsoft's generative AI tool that automatically drafts message responses, its CEO told Becker's for an Aug. 2 story.

8. Executives from health systems such as Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic and Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente are joining forces with leaders from Google and Microsoft to develop a "code of conduct" for the use of AI in healthcare, Becker's reported Aug. 2.

9. Durham, N.C.-based Duke Health entered into a five-year partnership Aug. 1 with Microsoft to create the Duke Health AI Innovation Lab and Center of Excellence.
