Behind the Scenes: How Weill Cornell Medicine built a chatbot for clinicians to gain fast access to medical data

Microsoft joined the Englander Institute of Precision Medicine (IPM) at Weill Cornell Medicine for a weeklong hackfest to develop a chatbot that supports both text and voice interactions with the Precision Medicine Knowledgebase (PMKB) for clinical cancer variants and interpretations.

The knowledge base currently supports 163 genes and 518 variants with 404 clinical interpretations. Pathologists and researchers are tasked with accessing this information by clicking through the given portal; however, in an attempt to make the knowledge base more mobile, the team created a bot using the Microsoft Bot Framework that connects to several channels including Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack, and WebChat. As a result, clinicians can now access this data in many different ways and make life-changing clinical decisions at a faster rate.

Join Jerry Nixon and Heather Shapiro as they welcome Alex Sigaras from Weill Cornell Medicine as they walk us through the project and describe how they built their chatbot using various Microsoft technologies.
