How to get work done by ChatGPT/GenAI

Sometime when we ask question to ChatGPT, it gives not that great answers and we get frustrated. However as they say, in normal conversation itself, it is not the answer but good question (how you ask) matters.

Here is an example where I wanted to track the results of my Annual Health Checkup in an excel over years. I did not want to type all the parameters so was looking for a handy template. Checked on Bing Chat and found that results were useless. 

But see how in end I could get what I wanted from Bing Chat to a large extent.

Thus few observations:
- The ability to ask good question is primary driver to get good answer
- GenAI is still not able to understand intend behind question which intelligent human mind normally able to understand. For example a mother knows what a kid want even if she/ he tells in whatever way.
- GenAI does not comply to what you ask always. See last answer, I specifically asked to separate columns with ^ but it did not.

Keep an eye as I plan to bring some of these practical Tricks to utilize ChatGPT or GenAI better....
can I get an excel sheet that contains template for blood reports with normal range

Certainly! Here’s a Blood Count (CBC) Tracker Excel template that you can use to log your blood test results and monitor your health. While it was initially designed for tracking results related to Polycythemia Vera, it can be adapted for other conditions as well1.

You can download the template here: Blood Count (CBC) Tracker for Excel.

Features of the template:

  • Log Your Test Results: The spreadsheet provides a starting point for you to enter your test results.
  • Graphs: It includes charts for values such as Hemoglobin, Platelets, RBC, Hematocrit, and WBC.
  • Customizable Ranges: You can edit the normal range values at the top of the “My Lab Data” worksheet.
  • Timeline Notes: You can add notes directly on the graph to track symptoms, procedures, medications, etc.

Remember to consult with your doctor regarding what levels are considered “normal” for you. Always seek professional medical advice when interpreting your test results1.

Feel free to explore this tool and adapt it to your specific needs! 🩸📊

I want ot track my Annual Health Checkup results across year so need an excel to input all parameters across year. Is there an excel template that shows all counts.

  1. Blood Count (CBC) Tracker Excel Template:

    • This template is designed for tracking blood test results, including parameters like Hemoglobin, Platelets, RBC, Hematocrit, and WBC.
    • It provides graphs and customizable ranges for normal values.
    • You can download it from here1.
  2. Health and Fitness Goals Tracker:

  3. Health Record Tracking Log Template:

    • This template allows you to manage and log your health data, including illnesses, doctor visits, and medications.
    • It’s essential for maintaining a comprehensive health record.
    • Access the template at ExcelMadeEasy3.

Remember to customize these templates according to your specific needs and consult with your healthcare provider for guidance on interpreting your test results. 🩺📊

First one shows only 2-3 paratmeters where other one is tracking visits etc. I am looking for a complete Annual Health Checkup report in excel

I apologize for the inconvenience. It seems the previous templates were not comprehensive enough for your needs. Let’s explore other options.

  1. Health-care Dashboard in Excel:

  2. Medicare Health Assessments Resource Kit (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners):

  3. National Health Service (NHS) England Templates:

  4. National Electronic Health Check Template:

    • This template provides a systematic approach to health checks, drawing on existing patient records.
    • It’s especially useful for people with learning disabilities.
    • More information can be found here4.

Remember to customize these templates according to your specific requirements. If none of these fully meet your needs, consider creating a custom Excel sheet tailored precisely to your annual health checkup parameters.

Nothing comes closer to what I am looking for. Let me rephrase - I want a sample Annual Health Checkup rpeort in excel that can be edited. This report will contains full Haemotology report like RBC, WBC, Platelet count, Immunology report like HIV, HBSAG test results, CLinical Pathology results etc

Certainly! I understand that you’re seeking a comprehensive Annual Health Checkup report in Excel that covers various parameters, including hematology, immunology, and clinical pathology. While I don’t have an exact template to provide, I recommend creating a customized Excel sheet based on your specific requirements.

However, let me guide you on how to structure such a report. You can create separate sections or tabs within the Excel workbook for each type of test result. Here’s a suggested layout:

  1. Hematology Section:

    • Create columns for parameters such as:
      • Red Blood Cell Count (RBC)
      • White Blood Cell Count (WBC)
      • Hemoglobin (Hb)
      • Hematocrit (Hct)
      • Platelet Count
    • Include additional columns for reference ranges and actual test results.
    • You can add notes or comments if needed.
  2. Immunology Section:

    • Include columns for specific immunology tests, such as:
      • HIV
      • Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg)
      • Other relevant tests
    • Again, provide reference ranges and actual results.
  3. Clinical Pathology Section:

    • This section can cover various parameters related to organ function, metabolism, and overall health.
    • Examples include:
      • Liver Function Tests (LFTs): ALT, AST, bilirubin, etc.
      • Kidney Function Tests (KFTs): Creatinine, BUN, eGFR, etc.
      • Lipid Profile: Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides.
      • Glucose Levels: Fasting blood sugar (FBS), postprandial blood sugar (PPBS), HbA1c.
      • Other relevant tests.
    • Again, include reference ranges and actual results.
  4. Notes and Summary:

    • Reserve a section for any additional notes, interpretations, or recommendations.
    • Summarize the overall health status based on the test results.

Remember to format the Excel sheet with appropriate headers, borders, and font styles for clarity. You can also use conditional formatting to highlight abnormal results. Once you’ve set up the structure, input your actual test results as you receive them during your annual health checkups.

Feel free to customize this template to suit your preferences and add any other relevant information.

Can you list down all possibile parameters under different sections with reference ranges

Certainly! Let’s create a comprehensive list of health parameters commonly included in an Annual Health Checkup report, along with their reference ranges. Remember that these ranges can vary based on factors such as age, gender, and individual health conditions. Always consult with your healthcare provider for personalized guidance.

Here are the key sections and parameters:

  1. Hematology:

    • These parameters assess blood cell counts and related factors.
      • Red Blood Cell Count (RBC): Normal range varies by gender and age.
      • White Blood Cell Count (WBC): Typically 4,500 to 11,000 cells per microliter.
