The National Academies Board on Human System Integration (BOHSI) Panel: Promise, Progress and Challenges of Leveraging AI Technology in Healthcare
This panel brings together experts in the fields of Human Factors, Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to discuss the state of the art and research and design frontiers relating to the application of AI technologies to Healthcare. Advances in AI, machine learning, and robotics promise to revolutionize access to and quality of healthcare. This includes earlier detection, improved diagnosis, more targeted and personalized therapies and robotic assistance for patient rehabilitation and in-home care. At the same time lessons learned from previous waves of AI technology suggest the need for careful consideration of the use context and the broader sociotechnical system perspective to avoid developing brittle systems that fail to be used or worse that negatively impact provider experience and patient care.

The panel session will begin with brief presentations by each panel member summarizing their perspective on opportunities and challenges of leveraging AI technologies in healthcare. We will then open it up to questions from the ‘virtual’ audience.

Panel members include Brenna Argall, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Northwestern University, whose research is at the intersection of artificial intelligence, rehabilitation robotics and machine learning; Barbara Barry, Assistant Professor, Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery, Mayo Clinic, whose research concerns patient and provider interactions with AI in healthcare systems to enhance decision-making and trust; Pascale Carayon, Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, whose research encompasses the application of human factors and systems engineering and the analysis and design of sociotechnical systems in health care and patient safety; Sara Czaja, Director of the Center on Aging and Behavioral Research at Weill Cornel Medicine, whose research focusses on designing for an aging population; and Raj Ratwani, Director, MedStar Health Na
