In pursuit of parity: A guide to the responsible use of AI in health care

10:00am PDT Wednesday, March 31st, 2021

Leaders from all sectors of health care are increasingly integrating artificial intelligence (AI) into their organizations to achieve strategic goals, and confidence in the technology's promise is growing. A 2020 Optum survey on AI in health care found that 59% of respondents expect a full return on their AI investments in under three years, nearly double the 31% who answered similarly in 2018. Health care’s Quadruple Aim is to simultaneously improve health outcomes, enhance and simplify the experiences of both patients and providers, and reduce overall costs — and AI is seen as an integral tool to help achieve it. The risk is that predictive models may unintentionally perpetuate harmful racial and gender biases that directly impact a patient's health or access to care. In order to overcome these challenges, health care organizations need to acknowledge their existence—and take proactive steps to promote equity by examining both the data these models interpret and how the models are being applied. In this VB Live event, you'll learn more about how AI can help health care experts do their jobs more efficiently and effectively, and how stakeholders throughout health care can use AI responsibly, ethically, and equitably. Plus, you'll get an in-depth perspective on the strengths and limitations of data, AI methodology, the application of AI results, and more. - What it means to use advanced analytics "responsibly" - Why responsible use is so important in health care as compared to other fields - The steps that researchers and organizations are taking today to ensure AI is used responsibly - What the AI-enabled health system of the future looks like and its advantages for consumers, organizations, and clinicians Speakers: - Brian Christian, Author, The Alignment Problem, Algorithms to Live By and The Most Human Human - Sanji Fernando, SVP of Artificial Intelligence & Analytics Platforms, Optum - Kyle Wiggers, AI Staff Writer, VentureBeat (moderator)
