Issue Brief Describes How Artificial Intelligence May Improve Diagnostic Team Safety
Reimagining Healthcare Teams: Leveraging the Patient-Clinician-AI Triad To Improve Diagnostic Safety, a new AHRQ Issue Brief, presents a framework that guides patients and clinicians on how to successfully partner with safe and effective artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) when making diagnostic decisions.
The brief outlines the strengths and limitations of the relationships between patients and clinicians, patients and AI, and clinicians and AI. Using a team-based care approach, this brief introduces the concept of a patient-clinician-AI diagnostic team. As AI and ML becomes more prevalent in healthcare, it is essential for both clinicians and patients to effectively collaborate with AI in the diagnostic process.
