Health Equity and the AI Executive Order

Health agencies are tasked with implementing the Biden plan to responsibly use AI. Do health leaders think it will work?

Artificial intelligence is impacting all aspects of government, including public health. The Biden-Harris administration’s recent AI executive order impacts health agencies and tasks leaders with building frameworks for ensuring AI is deployed fairly, ehtically and with accuracy in health situations. Health equity remains an issue in the U.S., and leaders of health agencies are thinking of “health equity as a core design principle” of AI systems to be deployed.

GovCIO Media & Research Managing Editor Ross Gianfortune and Staff Writer/Researcher Jayla Whitfield discuss the impact of AI on health equity, the ways that leaders are treating the executive order and how health care will be affected by emerging technology.
