On September 14, 2020, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will virtually convene an open forum workshop of interested stakeholders to explore opportunities for progress in AI-enabled systems in healthcare through collaboration and standardization, to identify challenges, barriers and gaps, and to discuss steps to optimize regulatory frameworks.
In July, ANSI issued a survey on Standardization Empowering AI-enabled Systems in Health Care. Survey results will inspire the discussion at a public-private virtual workshop, which will cover data, transparency and explainability, governance and risk management, related to AI-enabled systems in healthcare.
The goal of this virtual workshop is to set the stage and build momentum for an in person workshop in 2021, where recommendations for coordination of standardization and governance to meet expectations of safety, quality, responsibility, and risk—to support AI-enabled systems in health care—can be developed.
Register in advance for the workshop via WebEx.
Standardization and AI-enabled Systems in Health care
The landscape for standardization and regulation of AI-enabled systems in healthcare is complex and very dynamic. While many stakeholders understand different parts of this landscape, it is unlikely that anyone possesses full knowledge of it. In order to create a common understanding, to identify and fill gaps, and to increase awareness and coordination in standards, ANSI will sponsor a virtual workshop focusing on the role of autonomous and intelligent systems standards in medical software and consumer systems that interact with the professional health care sector.
As the coordinator of the U.S. private sector-led system of voluntary standardization, ANSI has initiated a dialogue with stakeholders. The Institute provides a neutral venue for broad and open discussion of standardization issues for emerging technologies and in national priority areas.
Stakeholders interested in getting involved in the September 14 workshop can contact Michelle Deane, ANSI Director, at [email protected].
