The Alliance for Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare {(AAIH) Baltimore, MA, USA} was formally launched following the inaugural meeting of its 22-person board of directors. In order to oversee AAIH’s work in promoting the advancement of AI, the AAIH board also identified six standing committees which included Education and Accreditation, Federal Engagement and Regulatory Affairs, Investment and Commercialization, Communications, Technology and Standards Development, and Industry Performance and Data Analytics.

The AAIH is a multi-stakeholder non-profit advocacy and education organization dedicated to promoting the further development and implementation of AI in healthcare. The membership-based alliance is a coalition of technology developers, pharmaceutical and device companies, research organizations and other associations engaged in advancing AI in the healthcare industry.

Over the next several months the AAIH board and its committees will begin developing strategy and initiatives aimed at educating the public about the benefits and risks of AI, promoting investment in AI-related research and development, and working with government officials in the US, European Union and other jurisdictions to develop regulatory and technology standards.

“In selecting industry experts from established and emerging companies to lead AAIH, the Board has demonstrated its commitment to the integration of AI across the full spectrum of healthcare with the goal of improving patients’ lives by creating more efficient, sustainable and accessible biomedical research and healthcare systems,” said Annastasiah Mudiwa Mhaka of Adjuvant Partners, who will be serving as the president of the organization.

“In recent years AI companies have begun implementing increasingly sophisticated machine learning techniques to significantly mitigate and, in some cases, eliminate inefficiencies in the current healthcare system,” said Naheed Kurji, president & CEO of Cyclica Inc., who was elected as secretary. “These innovations have accelerated growth of AI in the healthcare industry, and engendered enthusiasm and hope in consumers and patients alike. AAIH will work to collaboratively help bring these new health care advances to patients worldwide.”
