Building Trust Through the Intersection of Data & Technology in Healthcare

Big data and advanced technologies play an increasingly significant role in our health and the healthcare we receive, paving the way for more efficient and equitable healthcare systems. Key components of such systems include stakeholder involvement, data integrity, and technology transparency. Understanding the linkage of these factors is essential to catalyze a trusted healthcare environment.

This session examines how:
*Trusted intermediators should seek input from diverse stakeholders to ensure their questions are meaningful to the beneficiaries
*Data integrity and representativeness is essential to avoid potential downstream biases and/or harm
*Model transparency is necessary to ensure that AI technologies are deployed in an equitable and reproducible manner
