Vanderbilt’s Embí and team Awarded AIM-HI Grant to Improve Use & Monitoring of AI in Health Care

Researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center were awarded funding from the Augmented Intelligence in Medicine and Healthcare Initiative (AIM-HI) Coordinating Center at Kaiser Permanente for their project “Advancing Novel Approaches and Best Practices for Effective AI-Enabled Diagnosis using Randomized Trials, Algorithmovigilance, and Proactive Risk Assessment.”

Vanderbilt is one of five health care organizations to receive the funding, supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, to pursue research projects deploying artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms to enhance diagnostic decision-making in health care. Awardees were each provided up to $750,000, effective in early 2024, for their projects.

Among the five grant recipients is a team led by Vanderbilt’s Peter Embí, MD, MS, primary principal investigator (PI). Co-PIs include DBMI’s Laurie Novak, PhD, MHSA, Megan Salwei PhD, MS, and Colin Walsh, MD, MA.
