16 health systems join generative AI consortium

More than 20 health systems and other organizations have joined a consortium to research and develop strategies for generative artificial intelligence in healthcare.

Digital health network Avia formed the Generative AI Strategic Collaborative with the American Hospital Association and others to address topics such as AI opportunities, risks, data ownership, privacy concerns, regulations, and ethics.

"Generative AI is a true 'make or break' opportunity for the healthcare industry," Avia CEO Linda Finkel said in a July 18 news release. "Health systems that step up to the plate stand to reap enormous benefits, as do their patients and clinicians. Health systems that opt to watch from the sidelines — or find themselves unprepared to navigate the risks — will find themselves quickly outpaced and left behind."

A partial list of participants includes:

— Children's Health (Dallas)

— Froedtert Health (Milwaukee)

— Geisinger (Danville, Pa.)

— Henry Ford Health (Detroit)

— MedStar Health (Columbia, Md.)

— Memorial Hermann Health System (Houston)

— MemorialCare (Fountain Valley, Calif.)

— MUSC Health (Charleston, S.C.)

— NorthShore Edward-Elmhurst Health (Evanston, Ill.)

— Northwestern Medicine (Chicago)

— Presbyterian Healthcare Services (Albuquerque, N.M.)

— Providence (Renton, Wash.)

— Rush University System for Health (Chicago)

— Sentara Health (Norfolk, Va.)

— Silver Cross Hospital (New Lenox, Ill.)

— University Hospitals (Cleveland)
