This is more of a fluff piece than actual advancement. Here is the meat of the article:

Hippocratic says its Constellation model outperformed real nurses 79% to 63% in identifying a medication's impact on lab values; 88% to 45% in identifying condition-specific disallowed over-the-counter medications; 96% to 93% in correctly comparing a lab value to a reference range; and 81% to 57% in detecting toxic dosages of over-the-counter drugs.

Basically, these are low hanging fruit things, not the primary job of those "expensive" nurses. We need to look at this AI against scheduling appointments, determining whether the complaint is critical to go to ER, can wait a few days, or routine and can be handled over the phone.

My friend once got prescribed a medicine she was deathly allergic to and before the nurse went to administer it she asked what they were doing. Then she showed em her bracelet.

It is a tool that should be used by nurses not to replace them

Even though Nvidia wants this

Yeah, I've experienced having a family member end up in the ER after being prescribed twice the recommended dosage for a harsh antibiotic. It's good to set up automated guard rails to sanity check the actions of overworked and rushed human health practitioners, but nvidia is being rather irresponsible in selling the notion of replacing Healthcare professionals with this.
