At the beginning of September, Senator Cassidy (R-LA) released a white paper, Exploring Congress’ Framework for the Future of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and solicited feedback from stakeholders.
Today, HIA responded to Senator Cassidy’s call and submitted our feedback. Our comments encouraged Congress to:
- Take advantage of the full potential for AI to combat waste, fraud, and abuse in the Medicare program
- Use AI to reduce clinician burden, improve patient outcomes, and streamline administrative processes
- Ensure that regulation of AI balances the need for innovation in health care, including allowing patients to access cutting-edge technologies with appropriate safeguards
- Educate consumers and ensure transparency of AI to create trust in the technology
