AI in Healthcare: Balancing Risk and Opportunity – free webinar Wed Jul 10 at 10am (Sponsored by NNLM Region 3)

The Network of the National Library of Medicine Region 3, housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library, would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our monthly webinar series, Health Bytes with Region 3. This monthly 1 hour series focuses on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

Technology is advancing at a rapid pace in what can feel like every sector of our lives, and healthcare is not exempt. In healthcare settings, AI assists in detecting, predicting, and monitoring health status, conditions, and behavior and assists in processes related to direct healthcare delivery. Amidst excitement, there is also growing concern around how AI can pose significant potential risk and harm across healthcare systems. How ought organizations, regulators, software vendors, and individual practitioners respond to these risks while still utilizing and appreciating the benefits of these technologies? A comprehensive solution is urgently needed in the AI space because practitioners and healthcare leaders are determined to realize the benefits and efficiencies of these technologies right now. Yet, standard processes that ensure human touchpoints, thoughtful consideration, and application of ethical principles to algorithm utilization are often underutilized or completely absent. Due to the lack of these processes and limited regulatory guidance, healthcare organizations are now working to fill the gap so they can use these tools responsibly. This talk provides practical guidance on how to start creating a system for the ethical use of AI so healthcare organizations can mitigate risks of AI and leverage it as a beneficial tool.
