Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform healthcare, from diagnosis to treatment, and standardization can play a major role in the process. However, the landscape for standardization and regulation of AI-enabled systems in healthcare is currently very complex and dynamic.
On September 14, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will host Standardization Empowering AI-enabled Systems in Healthcare Coordination Workshop to explore opportunities for progress through collaboration and standardization; identify challenges, barriers and gaps; and discuss steps to optimize regulatory frameworks. Featuring a number of dynamic and high-level health care experts from industry and government, the event will focus on the role of autonomous and intelligent systems standards in medical software and consumer systems that interact with the professional health care sector.

The workshop will set the stage and 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 can be developed. Jamie Ferguson, VP, health IT strategy and policy, Kaiser Permanente, and Lisa Carnahan, Associate Director for IT standardization, Information Technology Laboratory, NIST, are the workshop co-conveners.
"Ultimately, we expect to arrive at recommendations that will support AI-enabled systems ability to meet expectations of safety, quality, responsibility, and risk," said Mr. Ferguson. "This work is critically important because of the role and promise of AI to improve the quality of care and the patient experience while giving individuals new options for convenience and lower costs."
