You can reduce bias posed by AI in healthcare

You can reduce bias posed by AI in healthcare

A personal message from Maggie Neustadt

Dear CPB Friend:

My commitment to the Center for Practical Bioethics as a member of the Board of Directors grew out of my work as an attorney and clinical risk manager for Saint Luke’s Health System.

I have seen first-hand how the Center’s experts provide real-time, practical clinical ethical advice to patients, families and care providers faced with moments of genuine moral distress.

On September 13, 2022, Dr. Lindsey Jarrett, the principal investigator on the Center’s Ethical AI Initiative, and I presented together at the annual conference of American Society of Healthcare Risk Managers to shine a light on the unintended bias in health and healthcare decision-making that can flow from technological solutions. 

The goal of the Ethical AI Initiative is to identify ethical problems and risks associated with use of artificial intelligence in healthcare and to leverage industry know-how, academic expertise and consumer experience to design, pilot and disseminate interventions that mitigate ethical problems and risks. 

I am proud that the Center is leading in this rapidly developing area.

You can be a change agent in this pioneering work!

In times like these, what excites me the most about Ethical AI is the community-based participatory model that drives it. Diverse stakeholders who make up our 20-member Advisory Council range from developers and engineers who build AI to the clinicians and patients whose diagnoses and care depend on them.

Your year-end gift will help to reduce inequities and injustice

created by technology before they become endemic.

We would be so grateful for your gift.

Sincerely,

Maggie Neustadt, JD, CPHRM, FASHRNM
Vice President & Claims Management
Saint Luke’s Health System
