AI text in hand.

Five-year partnership with Microsoft to reshape health care

Duke Health is embarking on a five-year, innovative partnership with Microsoft aimed at responsibly and ethically harnessing the potential of generative artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud technology to redefine the health care landscape.

By marrying Duke Health's leadership in patient care and medical research with Microsoft's technological expertise, this strategic partnership will usher in a new era of innovation, to include the creation of a Duke Health AI Innovation Lab and Center of Excellence.

Microsoft will equip Duke with state-of-the-art training to foster a cloud-savvy IT workforce and construct a secure cloud environment to simplify and modernize IT operations. In addition, Duke intends to use Microsoft Azure’s secure cloud to streamline clinical care, promote health equity, and further advancements in both research and education.

Duke Health and Microsoft will also pioneer new AI-based solutions designed to augment health care and fast-track innovation. Microsoft's reputation for leading-edge advancements in generative AI technology is globally recognized, and this collaboration will use Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service to redefine health care experiences for providers and patients.

AI has a wide array of potential applications to enhance health care processes, including automation of administrative tasks to reduce workloads and expanded capabilities for personalizing patient education.

"Duke Health's commitment to delivering the next generation of medicine is unwavering. Through this collaboration, we aim to bring the future of health care into the present, crafting a new normal that is not merely innovative but transformative."

Craig Albanese, M.D., chief executive officer of Duke University Health System
