Hi all, For the past 3 years, I have led the development of an AI-driven diagnostic clinical reasoning engine. It is a great privilege to join SIDM and have the opportunity to share with this distinguished community the work we do. Kahun is Tel Aviv based med-tech venture that developed an AI virtual in-take technology. Kahun has built an evidence-based medical knowledge graph (20M+ relations) and an AI engine that utilizes the graph to generate real-time insights. It enables Kahun to perform a patient interview, capture the history of present illness (HPI), conduct a systems review (ROS) and generate a concise summary ready for the healthcare provider.Kahun's Medical Knowledge Graph is a unique, highly-connected knowledge base that is designed to model medical knowledge about diseases and their interconnected relations as this information appears in evidence-based literature, modeling both the ontological level and the quantitative, empirical facts. The company has harnessed its clinical reasoning platform to build the chatbot for virtual clinical intake.Note - this is not another symptom checker: The goal is not to assess likely diseases based on subjective responses but to provide a standard, high-quality virtual intake ending with a physician summary which can both save time for the provider and more importantly, standardizes the quality of history taking across all patient-physician encounters. It can also reduce the likelihood of anchoring, human bias, or missing important clues which many times result in costly late or misdiagnosis. Kahun aims to provide a high-quality, standard front door for any patient-provider interaction. (Virtual First, Telemedicine and traditional).

We are seeking collaborations with research groups, partnerships with other solutions for providers such as Telemedicine, scheduling, EHRs and EHR add-ons. If this is relevant for any of the members of this community, I'd be honored to share more details.Thank you for your attention,Michal--
