This CLE webinar will guide healthcare counsel on artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. The panel will examine how the healthcare industry is using AI and will discuss the regulatory challenges and legal considerations when using AI as well as the potential barriers to AI.


The use of AI in healthcare can be life-changing. For example, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston is using AI to diagnose potentially deadly blood diseases at a very early stage. Beth Israel is also working on streamlining operations with the use of AI. Babylon Health in New York has used AI to create a symptom checker that "checks known symptoms and risk factors to provide up-to-date health information," thereby providing personalized and interactive healthcare.

The investment in healthcare AI is expected to reach over $6.5 billion by 2021. Some predictions estimate savings of up to $150 billion by 2026 annually. However, the use of AI in the highly regulated healthcare industry is not without its hurdles. HIPAA, Stark, AKS, and CMP present compliance challenges.

Additionally, the development and use of AI in healthcare requires consideration of issues such as the scope of practice, reimbursement, data integration and security, standard of care, and malpractice. Healthcare organizations, providers, and others must recognize that AI will impact the provision of care and address the legal implications of AI in the provision of healthcare.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines how the healthcare industry is using AI and will examine the regulatory challenges and legal considerations when using AI as well as the potential barriers to AI.



  1. Use of AI in healthcare
  2. Legal considerations for healthcare organizations, providers, and hospital systems
    1. Regulatory compliance
    2. Scope of practice
    3. Reimbursement
    4. Data integration, exchange, and security
    5. Standard of care


The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • What are some of the legal considerations and barriers to AI?
  • What standard of care applies when using AI in healthcare decisionmaking?
  • How can healthcare providers minimize liability risks when using AI systems for diagnostics--or when deciding not to use AI systems?
