1.0 – Health Law and Compliance

AI in Healthcare – The Buzz of the Decade – Foundations and Trends in Compliance
Darlene Falcone, CCA
Kelly McLendon, RHIA, CHPS

This timely presentation delivers an update about new the new trends arising in relation to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and in healthcare. Machine learning is also addressed to the extent it is tied to AI. The trends have been emerging but took off with much more energy in 2023 with the rise of generative AI such as ChatGPT and OpenAI. Although we have seen much writing and technical jargon on the subject, there remains a need for clear understanding of what is and what is not on the table with AI and its sub-concept Machine Learning from a health information and privacy, security or other areas of compliance perspectives. 

The presentation is intended to impart a large volume of information about the rapidly changing technical environment that is introducing compliance concerns in a compact presentation with comprehensive slide content useable by attendees after the presentation as they adopt and train others on these subjects. Mr. McLendon is well known for condensing and simplifying the complex presentation content into easily learnable points with his signature delivery style.

Topics such as what are the foundational concepts that health information and compliance professionals should be aware of, what types of AI and Machine Learning is important to us from system and vendor perspectives, what compliance issues might arise (e.g., ChatGPT is not HIPAA compliant, but other vendors claim to be).
