Description

Machine learning has virtually unlimited uses in the healthcare industry. From pacemakers to smart scalpels, to smartwatches to radiology, and detecting cancers to mapping infectious disease, healthcare providers can leverage machine learning to provide better healthcare. Machine learning can also be used to streamline administrative processes in hospitals.

There are legal issues that are raised with the use of machine learning in healthcare. Among the legal concerns are the regulatory requirements, reimbursement issues, privacy and security issues, and standard of care. For example, machine learning presents challenges to companies with obligations to safeguard protected health information and other sensitive information. Further, the use of machine learning may implicate HIPAA as well as state privacy and security laws. Machine learning presents risks of privacy breaches and cybersecurity threats.

It is critical for healthcare organizations, providers, and counsel to recognize how machine learning impacts the provision of care and address the legal implications.
