When using any newly available technology in your role it is important to consider the risks and benefits.
The available Large Language Models (LLMs) and Generative Artificial Intelligence (Generative AI) tools have not been validated as safe and effective for use in healthcare, nor have the risks and benefits been adequately evaluated in the Aotearoa New Zealand health context.
Te Whatu Ora DOES NOT ENDORSE the use of LLMs or Generative AI tools where non-public information is used to train the model or used within the context of the model.
NAIAIEAG advises that Te Whatu Ora employees and contractors must NOT:
Enter any personal, confidential or sensitive patient or organisational data into LLMs or Generative AI tools
Use these LLM or Generative AI tools for any clinical decision, or any personalised patient-related documentation, or for personalised advice to patients.
