This is the first initiative powered by AI for orthopaedics that will update doctors with the latest content through thousands of published articles and videos under one roof for better decision-making.

Pune-based Sancheti Hospital has launched a generative AI tool, OrthoAI to help orthopaedic experts access vast and rich medical literature.

This is the first initiative powered by AI for orthopaedics that will update doctors with the latest content through thousands of published articles and videos under one roof for better decision-making.

This newly launched AI helps in decision-making, which is generally based on three aspects: surgeon’s clinical experience, current literature and the patient’s requirements.

Moreover, OrthoAI takes into account these aspects and searches the literature through PubMed and experience-based knowledge from OrthoTV.

The initiative is a result of extensive work by a team of doctors from Sancheti Hospital and IT professionals from Pune-based Script Lanes. The tool is modelled to be an evidence-based generative AI for orthopaedics built on LLM and a cognitive search model that provides answers to queries with citations to recent literature and related videos.

According to Dr Parag Sancheti, chairman of Sancheti Hospital, the initiative is aimed at helping orthopaedics deliver the best outcomes for the patient.

While expressing his views, Dr Ashok Shyam, consultant orthopaedic surgeon and head of academics and research, at Sancheti Hospital, said, “It is challenging to keep up with current literature which is dynamic, vast and ever-expanding. Every surgeon’s experience varies too. So it will help if we have shared experiences. It is like a co-pilot for orthopaedic surgeons in making decisions. Since these decisions are optimised by literature and shared experiences, it can help in using resources in a better way. AI is an evolving concept and we will keep evolving with a tab on ethics and safety.”

Founded in 1965 by Dr KH Sancheti, the Pune-based multispecialty hospital specialises in orthopaedic care to patients in India.As per the hospital’s website, it also has advanced infrastructure, research and innovation facilities, international patient care standards, affordability and accessibility measures.

In a similar development, Oracle unveiled generative AI and Voice command capabilities to elevate patient engagement. These innovations aim to help healthcare organisations increase productivity, reduce costs, implement new business models, enhance decision-making processes, and deliver improved patient care.
