Episode 81: Risks and Liabilities of Generative AI in Healthcare
"Steve, I think in the near future, patients will need to be informed when doctors refuse to use AI—not WHEN they're using it." The "Red Hot" candor of today's guest, Dr. Robert Pearl. One of the most outspoken advocates for the use of generative artificial intelligence in healthcare. He pulls no punches when he states that ChatGPT and other generative AI tools will be as essential to medical practice as the stethoscope has been for centuries! It's another sizzling episode of Red Hot Healthcare, where we delve into cutting-edge topics, widely-felt challenges, and the latest innovation in healthcare.   Dr. Pearl is a thought leader powerhouse. As the former CEO of the Permanente Group, he was responsible for a team of 10,000 physicians and 40,000 care team members, delivering care to more than 5 million patients nationwide. A best-selling author, he wrote Uncaring: How the Culture of Medicine Kills Doctors and Patients, and he is also a regular contributor to Forbes. He has been named one of Modern Healthcare's 50 most influencial physician leaders. Dr. Pearl brings his candor and leadership, sharing thoughts on the following:   How accurate are AI diagnoses versus human clinicians? Is your doctor already being outperformed? What are the liabilities to consider with chatbots integrating into clinical care? Where should the line be drawn? How can healthcare overcome biases identified in algorithms that help drive generative AI and its responses? A hardline comparative: Generative AI benefits vs. annual deaths from medical mistakes In 5 short years, we'll see major improvement in 4 key areas. What are they? Is keeping patients in the dark today about AI involvement ethical? Should their informed consent for AI use in medical care be mandatory? What happens when AI gets something wrong—really wrong—in healthcare? How will generative AI be a key part of moving from fee-for-service to value-based care? ———— The Red Hot Healthcare podcast delivers engaging thought leadership—from healthcare leaders and luminaries across the industry.
