AI Healthcare Safety

Iteration of Healthcare System

digital structure => configuration => activities or processes => outcomes => more structures

  • EHR
  • decision support systems

Technology in general is becoming safer over time => ideally, some form of high level safety is achieved.

important: define a shared vocabulary between technologists and clinicians

Technology-Induced Errors

Though EHS can serve to reduce medical errors, it can work in increase errors as well.

  • bias
  • ignorance of environmental factors
  • Error reporting + incident reporting


  • get rid of each problem
  • help establish well-configured systems which could promote safety
  • patient simulation with clinician + technology to see how it fits into process of care
  • what could that look like from a home health-care perspective
