Medical News / Newly reported from AHA 2023: AI App Predicts Heart Failure Early by Listening to People Talk

In a recent study, a smartphone app using artificial intelligence (AI) predicted heart failure 3 weeks before hospitalization—all because of a person’s voice. The late-breaking science was presented Monday, November 13, 2023, at the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Scientific Sessions 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. AI is growing—and this AI heart-failure-predicting app is just another growing piece. AI is becoming more prevalent in the medical field with aiding diagnostics. According to the Southern Medical Association, approximately 5% of outpatients in the U.S. in 2021 receive an incorrect diagnosis, so AI helps to assist diagnoses. Three years ago, scientists at Babylon developed new AI symptom checkers to help cut diagnosis mistakes in primary care.2 So, while using AI for diagnoses is not brand-new, the new app in the study can improve the treatment for heart failure specifically.
