About Michal Tzuchman Katz MD and Kahun Medical


Michal Tzuchman Katz MD is the Co-Founder and CEO of Kahun, the developer of the evidence-based AI clinical-reasoning tool, the only explainable AI chatbot for physicians. Kahun helps doctors make better-informed decisions based on the company’s proprietary map of more than 30 million evidence-based medical insights. Kahun’s engine utilizes this map in real-time to generate clinical insights tailored to each patient, while also linking back to relevant sources, thus providing physicians with the ability to track its reasoning process. Regardless of the specific clinician treating a patient, the time of day, or any other variable, Kahun ensures they will be treated to the highest standard of medical care available.

Dr. Katz is also a practicing pediatrician. Coming from a background as a software engineer and later moving on to med-school to train as a pediatrician, Dr. Katz saw firsthand the potential AI has to improve patient outcomes. During my time in med-school, she couldn’t help but think how different the tech and the healthcare industries approach data and information. Doctors have to make informed decisions in real time and under very stressful conditions, and need to perform their clinical reasoning based on their own individual medical knowledge. Dr. Katz’s time in the ER showed her how valuable AI tools can be to improve the quality of care through standardization, alleviating the burden on healthcare professionals and eliminating bias.

Kahun has created the world’s first knowledge-graph-based clinical reasoning engine for physicians, made of more than 30 million meticulously vetted clinical insights, and has achieved multiple first-of-their-kind partnerships. In 2021, Kahun collaborated with NEJM to create the NEJM Healer app, an interactive, online education application for teaching, exercising, and assessing clinical reasoning. By integrating ChatGPT this year, Kahun merged generative AI with an explainability layer that practically enables their clinical use. In a world first, Kahun recently joined hands with Tel Aviv’s Ichilov hospital to bring explainable generative AI-based triage to the ER for the first time.
