Generative AI collaborative adds 8 more health systems

Eight more health systems have joined a national collaborative to shape the use of generative artificial intelligence in healthcare.

The consortium from digital health firm Avia brings health system, government and industry association leaders together to form generative AI guidelines and solutions.

The new health system members include:

— Banner Health (Phoenix)

— BJC HealthCare (St. Louis)

— Boston Children's Hospital

— Children's Mercy Kansas City (Mo.)

— Cottage Health (Santa Barbara, Calif.)

— Novant Health (Winston-Salem, N.C.)

— OSF HealthCare (Peoria, Ill.)

— UVA Health (Charlottesville, Va.)

They join at least 18 other health systems that have already signed on to the group, including New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health and Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai.

"Children's hospitals have unique challenges when it comes to generative AI and other new technology — such as gaining consent from our patients and families — so we look forward to working with other systems, experts, and technology firms to ensure peds needs are incorporated," said Rob Steele, MD, executive vice president and chief strategy and innovation officer at Children's Mercy, in an Oct. 3 news release. "By joining Avia's Generative AI Collaborative, Children's Mercy Kansas City is getting ahead of these challenges using a cocreated action plan from the country's best and brightest."
