Conference sparks discussion about monitoring impact of healthcare AI

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.
