Technological advances such as artificial intelligence are poised to transform health care — showing promise for not only augmenting the public workforce, but also improving the health and well-being of patients. However, the benefits of the AI, automation and algorithms also bring their share of risks, ranging from potential errors, risk of bias, increased inequalities, and lack of transparency and trust. Federal Leaders discuss how they’re developing ethical practices in health technology, addressing the impact of social determinants of health to better inform AI models, improving digital literacy to build trust in emerging technology, ensuring equitable access to services and delivering outcomes that serve and represent all Americans.
