Please take a look at this recent webinar that discussed these issues  DCI Network presents our latest webinar "AI in Healthcare: The Patient Perspective".

This engaging webinar explores various scenarios and the use cases where patients leverage AI to empower themselves. From interpreting lab results to making informed decisions about treatment options, the impact of these use cases promises to rebalance and democratize access to vital information and data. However, along with these benefits come potential risks. AI systems, particularly generative large language models, can provide newfound empowerment while simultaneously presenting challenges. This is the second installment in the DCI Network's series on AI in Healthcare, where we delve into these challenges from empowered patients' perspectives. Our esteemed speakers, Amy Price, Ph.D., and Dave deBronkart, both influential patient advocates with decades of experience, will share their invaluable insights on the subject and answer questions from the webinar attendees.
