AI in Healthcare: Cautions and Considerations of a Healthcare Revolution
The use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in healthcare recently has been developing at a fanatical and fascinating pace. Because the consequences of such technology are yet to be fully understood, thoughtful consideration of its use by industry stakeholders and users is necessary, especially with respect to the legal implications within the healthcare industry. This practice note, authored by partners Sara Shanti and Phil Kim and associates Christopher Rundell, Arushi Pandya and Elfin Noce, discusses AI's development in healthcare and federal and state efforts to regulate its use. It provides health law practitioners with an overview of the legal considerations associated with AI's use in healthcare, including data privacy, corporate practice of medicine, provider licensing, reimbursement, intellectual property and research. It concludes with a discussion of the ethical considerations involved with AI in healthcare and considerations for protections against potential liability.
