AI and Health Care: Good or Bad for Health Equity in California?

About This Event

Artificial intelligence (AI) is starting to reshape health care delivery in California, from physicians leveraging technology for recordkeeping so they can allocate more face-to-face time with patients to companies utilizing analytics tools that help streamline insurance claim processing and minimize denials.

As AI grows, leaders must consider governance, equity, and policy implications to ensure fair access and quality care. What are the governance, racial and socioeconomic equity, and policy considerations leaders should address in their decision-making? What case studies and best practices can policymakers and state leaders draw upon to ensure the health and safety of Californians?

Join CHCF in Sacramento on April 25 for a discussion moderated by Kara Carter, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Programs that will cover the following topics:

  • Overview of AI in health care and applications for improving patient care
  • Challenges and opportunities of AI in health care, including algorithmic bias and access to AI in historically marginalized communities
  • Policy and regulatory considerations that center health equity in the implementation of AI
