DCI Network presents our latest webinar "AI in Healthcare: Real World Data Generation and the Regulatory Perspective"

The pervasive integration of AI into every facet of our lives is an indisputable trend, and its most profound ramifications are notably pronounced within the healthcare domain. This influence came to the forefront at the HIMSS meeting held in April, where practically every prominent company in attendance at the trade show was showcasing their advancements driven by AI technology. This notable upsurge in the adoption of AI holds a range of far-reaching implications for the healthcare industry.

In the wake of this rapid expansion, it becomes imperative to raise and address pertinent questions regarding the data utilized for training AI systems. Considerations extend to the policy and regulatory dimensions of these decisions, along with the strategies regulatory bodies can employ to uphold trust and safety in this new era.

These inquiries, among others, will be the focal point of discussion during the final installment of our four-part webinar series, presented by the Division of Clinical Informatics. We are privileged to have Mark Shapiro, the COO of xCures, and Rob Stolper from IQVIA as speakers. They will delve into the regulatory implications concerning real-world data essential for training AI systems, as well as the methods to ensure the provision of accurate and reliable training data for these AI systems.

We cordially invite you to join us on Wednesday, September 13, for this engaging discourse. Participation in the webinar is free and open to the public, but we kindly request that you complete the registration process to secure your spot.

This is the ultimate webinar in a 4-part DCI Network Webinar Series exploring AI in Healthcare.
