Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Digital Healthcare at the Crossroads
September 26, 12:30p – 5:35p ET (followed by reception)
National Press Club, 529 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20045
Artificial/augmented intelligence (AI) systems offer the ability to rapidly accelerate improved outcomes and cost savings, and to drive a fundamental transformation of today’s reactive healthcare system to onethat proactively focuses on disease prevention and value. At the same time, AI’s growing role in healthcare – including the rise of generative AI tools – also raises a variety of unique challenges that government, providers, technology developers, patients, and others must address.
With questions and governance proposals reaching an inflection point in Congress, across executive and independent federal agencies, and within organizations of all sizes, this event will serve as a timely and influential public dialogue on (1) the state of health AI, (2) how leading organizations are addressing AI efficacy proactively, (3) the important role of government in addressing AI risks and opportunities in healthcare.
