UC Davis Health aims to reduce 'pajama time' through AI documentation

Sacramento, Calif.-based UC Davis Health will document medical conversations via artificial intelligence to cut down on "pajama time" for providers.

The health system is partnering with virtual practice management platform LiveCare Corp. to automate documentation as part of the UC Davis Digital Collaborative for Innovation and Validation, or Digital CoLab.

"Documentation burden is one of the major drivers of provider burnout, and, historically, technologies such as EHRs have led to increased burden and provider 'pajama time' on after-hours administrative work," said Ashish Atreja, MD, CIO and chief digital health officer of UC Davis Health, in a Jan. 8 LiveCare news release. "We're excited to explore how LiveCare's technology can reduce this burden."

The technology aims to garner insights to improve patient care, clinician experience and billing accuracy by interpreting conversations between patients, nurses and physicians in real time.
