An artificial intelligence model developed by researchers from Mount Sinai Health System is able to distinguish between acute and chronic lower back pain based on clinical notes in EHRs, a recent study finds. "Several studies have documented increases in medication prescriptions and visits to physicians, physical therapists and chiropractors for lower back pain episodes,” said Ismail Nabeel, MD, MPH, FACOEM, Deputy Medical Director of Employee Health, Safety and Wellness for the Mount Sinai Health System. He added, “This study is important because artificial intelligence can potentially more accurately distinguish whether the pain is acute or chronic, which would determine whether a patient should return to normal activities quickly or rest and schedule follow-up visits with a physician.”
