Separating the promise from the hype about artificial intelligence in healthcare

PARCA eNews – May 28, 2018 – To cut through the hype, assess the potential realistic implications of AI applications in health and healthcare, and understand the risks, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, turned to JASON, an independent group of scientists and academics.

The group has been advising the Federal government on matters of science and technology for over 50 years, to consider how AI might shape the future of public health, community health, and healthcare delivery.

Specifically we asked JASON to focus on technical capabilities, limitations, and applications for AI in health and healthcare that can be realized within the next ten years. This was a logical follow on a prior JASON report “A Robust Health Data Infrastructure,” which included recommendations for interoperability that resulted in the development of the Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap
