The process of history-taking has been challenging for India due to its booming population and severe scarcity of doctors. Inadequate patient history could lead to medication errors, adverse drug reactions, and medication noncompliance. Innovations in health information technology have great potential for improving the practice of medicine. Automated patient history is collected with the help of a computer. Physicians can use artificial intelligence to help with documentation, analysis of patient data while increasing the precision, productivity, and efficacy of the physician. Health-care providers are looking for regulatory compliant and efficient software for automated patient history taking. In telemedicine, automated history taking before the consultation can save physician‘s time, have more accurate history which will improve the telemedicine experience for the patient, especially in times of a pandemic like coronavirus disease 2019.
