Learning Objectives
Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the need for artificial intelligence applications in clinical and healthcare settings.
  • Cultivate an understanding of AI technology and where it can be applied in the continuum of care.
  • Detail the landscape of currently available tools and technologies.
  • Explain the importance of data management and ownership in the new age of AI in healthcare.

Target Audience
This webinar is intended for physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, risk managers, quality managers, patient safety officers, performance improvement staff members, administrators, pharmacists, legal counsel, front-line staff members, and any other interested parties.
Statement of Need
Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming an integral part of healthcare as it is incorporated into medical devices, clinical decision support tools, resource allocation algorithms, etc. The US Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory agencies worldwide are just beginning to develop frameworks to ensure quality and patient safety. Moreover, the decisions made by the algorithms cannot always be explained. Although AI has the potential to improve healthcare, there are risks and unknowns. Physicians and other healthcare professionals need to know about the benefits and risks of AI, as well as available devices or software that use AI, so that they can make informed decisions to use AI effectively and ensure the best health outcomes for their patients.

Here are the key takeaways from this activity. More details and examples, plus an opportunity to receive credit, are available at the "Continue" button below.

  • The proportion of primary care physicians (PCPs) to patients in the United States is decreasing.
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) is one means to reduce the administrative burdens on PCPs, increase the time available for direct patient care, and reclaim personal time.
  • AI derives knowledge from data, with or without human direction, and could potentially be used for disease surveillance, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and personalization of care.
  • To mitigate the risks associated with using AI, healthcare professionals must be able to understand and answer the following questions:
    • Who is using the technology?
    • What AI technology are you using?
    • When is AI being used and how often?
    • Where is AI being used in the organization?
    • How are data being harvested, secured, and shared?
