NKTI launches Bot MD Hospital - the first A.I. clinical assistant to improve clinical workforce efficiency and productivity


The National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) announced its partnership with Bot MD to launch the first of its kind A.I. clinical assistant in the Philippines. The Bot MD Hospital platform functions as a "Hospital Super App" which enables NKTI doctors and nurses to instantly search for all the hospital and clinical information they need within a single chat interface.

Bot MD has been integrated with NKTI specific hospital information including doctor duty rosters, the hospital directory, drug formulary, lab test catalogue and hospital protocols. Doctors and nurses can simply query the A.I. to obtain direct answers to the information they need. In addition the platform has also be integrated with third party professional medical resources such as the WHO ICD-10 codes, PhilHealth Case Rates, the Philippine National Formulary as well as clinical tools and information from UpToDate, MDCalc and QxMD. This will allow doctors and nurses in NKTI to quickly search the information they need to assist with their diagnosis, financial counseling and prescription workflows.

“NKTI is proud to be the first hospital in the Philippines to launch the A.I. powered Bot MD Hospital application. Bot MD will give our doctors and nurses instant access to the critical hospital and clinical information that they need, so they can dedicate more time to caring for our patients. We love that the Bot also has localized information including PhilHealth case rates and drug information from the Philippine National Formulary."

Dr Romina A. Danguilan
Deputy Executive Director, Medical Services, NKTI

The Bot MD Hospital platform also includes Einstein, a web-based admin dashboard that allows NKTI hospital and department administrators to easily manage their users, sync their hospital drug and lab formulary, guidelines and protocols as well as send hospital-wide broadcasts. Hospital management can also easily track user analytics to determine the types of hospital information to add.

"We are excited to launch Bot MD Hospital in the Philippines with NKTI - the country's leading kidney institution as our early adopter. Our company's mission is to empower doctors around the world with instant access to information that they need so that they can spend more time on patient care. We look forward to rolling out A.I. Assistant to help more doctors and hospitals across the Philippines in the coming months."

Ms Dorothea Koh
CEO and Co-Founder, Bot MD
