“AI is Revolutionizing Healthcare Quality – Are you
Insights from an
FDA-Industry Summit on AI in Healthcare
We are already using products and services based on artificial intelligence
(AI) in our daily life. Facebook, Apple, Amazon and Netflix have become household names. Now AI is beginning to fundamentally reshape the rough and heavily regulated landscape of Healthcare. We
haven’t found a cure for cancer yet, but the pace of innovation in medical device, pharmaceuticals, service delivery and patient experience is rapidly accelerating. FDA is working closely with the
industry to fully leverage AI technologies to foster innovation and completely change their approach to regulatory science and compliance oversight. Healthcare Quality is no longer a game of staying
in compliance with regulations; rather it has the potential to become an enabler of rapid innovation that will quickly bring life-saving products to the market.
In my presentation, I will share insights from a recent FDA-Industry summit on
AI in Healthcare. Topics covered will include how AI can accelerate drug discovery, medical device innovation, predictive quality, and culture change. I will also share the latest FDA thinking and
direction that will help develop a roadmap of success in both product approvals and regulatory compliance.
