With regard to health professionals, he assured in an interview medical writing what “we have to be involved from the first moment To be able to validate the tools and we can benefit from them”.

Is Artificial Intelligence implemented in the questions?

Still “Very Early”, However, Eskell stated that “We cannot turn our backs on the implementation of new technologies in our consultation because, among other things, they will allow us to move towards a more personalized and personalized medicine”.
