Healthcare’s rapid digitization has resulted in the creation and consumption of massive amounts of patient data. This data flows through the healthcare Internet of Things including EHRs, medical devices, diagnostic software, and numerous other connected systems. Artificial Intelligence (AI) may help organizations leverage patient data in novel ways to transform the healthcare industry by unlocking insights, driving quality and efficient improvements, and controlling costs. Yet, the use of AI is largely unregulated today and continues to create various legal risks and pose ethical questions.
