Improving the diagnostic process is a quality and safety priority. With the digitization of health records and rapid expansion of health data, the cognitive demand on the diagnostician has increased.


At 23Strands we pride ourselves on our commitment to the safety and privacy of our patient's health records, we are also very committed to the continual innovation in the Artificial intelligence space such as the importance of wayfinding  (interpreting context and providing cues that guide the diagnostician).

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) to assist human cognition has the potential to reduce this demand and associated diagnostic errors. However, current AI tools have not realized this potential, due in part to the long-standing focus of these tools on predicting final diagnostic labels instead of helping clinicians navigate the dynamic refinement process of diagnosis. This Viewpoint highlights the importance of shifting the role of diagnostic AI from predicting labels to “wayfinding.”
