CMS issues $1 million challenge to AI developers

Creating algorithms to predict unplanned hospitalizations could earn an AI developer a cool $1 million, Business Insider reports.

The CMS AI Healthy Outcomes Challenge is one of several ways the federal government plans to weave more AI into healthcare.

In February President Donald Trump ordered HHS and other federal agencies to spend more on artificial intelligence using existing funds.

Last year, the FDA moved to support the development of AI healthcare products, announcing it was working to ease the inclusion of AI in digital health tools through pre-certification programs, according to Business Insider.

Getting physicians on board with AI is proving to be a challenge, the report claims. Physicians and providers may be more willing to accept AI solutions if they are backed by government agencies, Business Insider said.
