Mayo Clinic, Kaiser Permanente team up with Big Tech on healthcare AI

Executives from health systems such as Mayo Clinic and Kaiser Permanente are joining forces with Big Tech leaders to develop a "code of conduct" for the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

The National Academy of Medicine launched the three-year project recently to advance the responsible use of AI in health, medical care and health research. It will blend the "best science" with "ethical principles and societal values," according to the academy. The group's first publication is due in early 2024.

"This is about designing a framework to deliver on the full promise of AI, with people at the center, so we can help more care providers help more patients," Philips CEO Roy Jakobs said in an Aug. 2 news release.

The steering committee includes Gianrico Farrugia, MD, president and CEO of Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic, and Andrew Bidman, MD, executive vice president and chief medical officer of Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente, as well as leaders from Google, Microsoft, Optum, Nashville, Tenn.-based Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and New York City-based Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
