The project leads are <strong>Peter Embí, MD, MS</strong>, and <strong>Laurie Novak, PhD, MHSA</strong>, from VUMC and Michael Pencina, PhD, and Nicoleta Economou, PhD, from Duke.</p> <p>This framework will outline the essential capabilities that health systems must establish to ensure they are well prepared for the trustworthy utilization of AI models.</p> <p>“The promise of AI for improving health and health care is great, but there is currently a wide gap between promise and reality,” said <strong>Embí</strong>, professor and chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation at VUMC.</p> <p>“This work will produce new tools and capabilities that our health system needs to ensure that we select, deploy and monitor health AI to make health care more safe, effective, ethical and equitable for all,” he added.</p> <p>“Our team at the Vanderbilt Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) has a long tradition of scholarship on technology and organizations, starting with Dr. Nancy Lorenzi, who paved the way for an informatics focus on workflow and management. We’re very excited to work with our partners at Duke, the University of Iowa, the Coalition for Health AI and the Moore Foundation to build an empirically supported maturity model for healthcare AI,” said <strong>Novak</strong>, associate professor in DBMI and director of Vanderbilt’s Center of Excellence in Applied AI.</p> <p><a href="https://news.vumc.org/2023/11/08/vanderbilt-and-duke-awarded-moore-foundation-grant-to-improve-oversight-of-ai-technology-in-health-care-systems/">Read more in the <em>VUMC Reporter</em></a>!</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-lockdown-auth field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Lockdown Auth</div> <div class="field__item">1</div> </div> Thu, 09 Nov 2023 16:08:16 +0000 garchima 1223 at https://www.vumc.org/dbmi DBMI Digest AMIA 2023 Edition—Now Available! https://www.vumc.org/dbmi/news/dbmi-digest-amia-2023-edition-now-available <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">DBMI Digest AMIA 2023 Edition—Now Available!</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/dbmi/users/garchima" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">garchima</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 11/07/2023 - 13:08</span> <a href="/dbmi/blog-post-rss/1222" class="feed-icon" title="Subscribe to DBMI Digest AMIA 2023 Edition—Now Available!"> RSS: <i class="fa fa-rss-square"></i> </a> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p style="text-align:start"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#212121"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:normal"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none"><span style="color:black">Just like most other years, Vanderbilt’s conference presence is robust this year!
