A comprehensive report ‘AI in Health Care’ by Reform was released this week.
It covers many aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare and is worth a read.
The governance of potential AI in the UK is important to note. Currently the MHRA provides guidance regarding healthcare devices and applications. The report does make some further suggestions:
The Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and NHS Digital should
assemble a team dedicated to developing a framework for the ethical and safe
applications of AI in the NHS. The framework should include what type of pre-release
trials should be carried out and how the AI algorithms should be continuously monitored.
Where Thinks Tanks publish reports so government usually follows!
