Background: To assist healthcare providers in interpreting guidelines, clinical questions (CQ) are often included, but not always, which can make interpretation difficult for non-expert clinicians. We evaluated the ability of ChatGPT to accurately answer CQs on the Japanese Society of Hypertension Guidelines for the Management of Hypertension (JSH 2019).Methods and Results: We conducted an observational study using data from JSH 2019. The accuracy rate for CQs and limited evidence-based questions of the guidelines (Qs) were evaluated. ChatGPT demonstrated a higher accuracy rate for CQs than for Qs (80% vs. 36%, P value: 0.005).Conclusions: ChatGPT has the potential to be a valuable tool for clinicians in the management of hypertension.
