A Regenstrief Institute and Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) conference on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare created a discussion about monitoring the impact of algorithms on care.
During the second day of the conference, Regenstrief President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Embí, M.D., M.S., made a case for “algorithmovigilance,” which is the systematic monitoring of healthcare algorithms to develop and respond to expected and unexpected effects. He stated he believes this surveillance is necessary to address and correct data biases as well as better understand the generalizability of algorithms.
The panel discussion was the subject of a Healthcare Innovation article.
In addition to monitoring the impact of AI, the three-day conference, Artificial Intelligence: Applying Research and Engineering Solutions for Emergent Needs in Healthcare, covered the application of AI in healthcare settings, the necessary building blocks to create effective AI and the future applications of this technology.
More than 500 people from 16 countries signed up to attend.
