Just been invited – I think it'll be ~2 weeks but I can pass an invite down our chain 💯
I'd be down for this!
Probably not for me – I don't think I'd pay, I just don't get sick enough / worry enough. I could imagine for a hypercondriac or someone who wants that piece of mind.
The idea of someone (or ai) knowing me and having my records does sound valuable, especially if it could be added to / stored safely.
One thing I have noticed, more often around guys is an attitude to just put off going to the doctors, or just forgetting. I guess because the friction is high, possibly an embarrassing situation. If you can lower the friction and triage (maybe human assisted) or lay out the steps of what to do next I could imagine that would be useful. e.g catching a cancerous mole early, that because its easy for you to ask, you do and then the tool smooths the process to getting checked out (explanation + organisation / booking).
Does that help?
Thanks, and this is super helpful. I hear you -- I'm pretty much the same way, and I bet it's only a small fraction that would go from gpt-4 generated health information to doctor verification.
Yeah I'd go via whatever my insurance recommend, as a nomad I use safetywing.com. When searching its mostly based around reviews and that they speak English.
More recent I've been checking in with ChatGPT (GPT-4) and using that to sense check my decision / reaction to what I should do.
e.g I think we were potentially over using hydrogen peroxide to clean a wound a few days after it happened where just saline solution would have been much better. ChatGPT caught that after being given it by a pharmacist and we just assumed how to use it.
Thanks, and this is what I was doing too--the answers are pretty good, but because it makes mistakes sometimes, I wanted to build in a way for a doctor to supervise somehow at minimal time/cost to everyone involved.
Would a supervised version of a gpt-4 by a real doctor ever be something that you'd pay for? Negative feedback would be super helpful if not.
I think I'd pay for medical verification of some of the information if it were from a small independent medical provider that didn't just grind me through their system--and that I could develop a history with so they knew when my last tetanus shot was when I crash my motorcycle in Zanzibar, etc. But I could automate most of my medical questions that didn't require a visit.
👋 Hey Veit – Fellow iOS developer, sounds like some fun projects! Is Biblogy still live, I couldn't seem to load it?
