Educating for a digital future: What do healthcare professionals need to know about AI and digital health?

Bringing together healthcare professionals from different disciplines, educators, AI technologists and those involved in clinical data governance.

Digital technologies and AI provide promising solutions to improve healthcare services, however, many of these technologies are still to be adopted and there are likely unforeseen barriers to accepting these technologies.

To educate for a digital future and to improve the ‘readiness’ for using these technologies, perhaps an AI and/or digital health awareness training could be embedded into undergraduate medicine and health science degree programmes. If this is possible, then what would the curriculum look like? And would AI informed clinicians be more likely to use these technologies?

Being more ‘AI aware’ could give professionals the tools to develop their AI knowledge and learn more about how they are developed and tested. This would help professionals calibrate their trust in using these technologies for different clinical scenarios and to mitigate against ‘automation bias’.

This event brings together healthcare professionals from different disciplines, educators, AI technologists and those involved in clinical data governance to present ideas and to address the question of - ‘What healthcare professionals need to know about AI and digital health?’.

She studied Biomedical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering and Medicine at Duke University and Yale University, respectively, and did postdoctoral fellowships at the University of California at Los Angeles, and the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) Departments of Radiology.

At UCSF, Dr. Andriole was instrumental in designing, building and implementing picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) before they became commercial entities. Her research has involved technical as well as clinically-relevant developments in medical informatics, image analysis, business analytics, and machine learning.

Dr. Andriole has developed and taught several formal courses, directed fellowships in biomedical imaging and informatics, and mentored more than 75 trainees. She has served in multiple leadership roles for the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), currently serves on the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Radiology Informatics Committee and the RSNA Machine Learning Steering Committee, and is the Senior Scientist for Education at the American College of Radiology (ACR) Data Science Institute.

She is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiology: Artificial Intelligence. Dr. Andriole has been elected a member of the Academy of Harvard Medical School, inducted into the College of SIIM Fellows, and named Third and Second Vice President of the RSNA for 2015 and 2018 respectively.

She has received the RSNA Honored Educator Award and the inaugural RADxx Trailblazer Award recognizing a pioneering woman leader in Imaging Informatics.

Dr Anthony Chang

“Intelligence-Based Medicine: Is this the future paradigm?”

Dr. Chang attended Johns Hopkins University for his B.A. in molecular biology prior to entering Georgetown University School of Medicine for his M.D. He then completed his pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital National Medical Center and his pediatric cardiology fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

He then accepted a position as attending cardiologist in the cardiovascular intensive care unit of Boston Children’s Hospital and as assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. He has been the medical director of several pediatric cardiac intensive care programs (including Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Miami Children’s Hospital, and Texas Children’s Hospital).

He served as the medical director of the Heart Institute at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. He is currently the Chief Intelligence and Innovation Officer (CIIO) and Medical Director of the Heart Failure Program at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. He has also been named a Physician of Excellence by the Orange County Medical Association and Top Cardiologist, Top Doctor for many years as well as one of the nation’s Top Innovators in Healthcare.

    He has completed a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in Health Care Administration at the University of Miami School of Business and graduated with the McCaw Award of Academic Excellence.

    He also completed a Masters in Public Health (MPH) in Health Care Policy at the Jonathan Fielding School of Public Health of the University of California, Los Angeles and graduated with the Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence.

    He later taught Global Health there. Finally, he graduated with his Masters of Science (MS) in Biomedical Data Science with a subarea focus in artificial intelligence from Stanford School of Medicine andhas completed a certification on artificial Intelligence from MIT.

    He is a computer scientist-in-residence and a member of the Dean’s Scientific Council at Chapman University. He has helped to build a successful cardiology practice as a startup company and was able to complete a deal on Wall Street. He is known for several innovations in pediatric cardiac care, including introducing the cardiac drug milrinone and co-designing (with Dr. Michael DeBakey) an axial-type ventricular assist device in children.

    He is a committee member of the National Institute of Health pediatric grant review committee. He is the editor of several textbooks in pediatric cardiology, including Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care, Heart Failure in Children and Young Adults, and Pediatric Cardiology Board Review.3 He is the founder of the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society (PCICS) that launched the multidisciplinary focus on cardiac intensive care for children.
