Centre for Healthcare Innovation Research at the School of Health and Psychological Sciences, City, University of London welcomes Milou Silkens to discuss her findings on the deployment of AI apps in healthcare as part of the research seminar series.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) initiatives in healthcare are viewed as key to healthcare modernization and they have the potential to improve the productivity and performance of healthcare systems. The development of such initiatives is therefore heavily funded and researched.
Despite rapid development of AI initiatives in healthcare, the implementation and adoption of these initiatives in clinical practice is challenging for a variety of reasons.
This seminar will review these challenges and discuss a way to increase transparency on the deployment of AI apps in healthcare – by creating a UK registry of deployment of AI apps.
We will touch upon the need for such a registry, discuss the opportunities and challenges of working towards a UK registry of deployment of AI apps and review critical success factors.
