Collective action for responsible AI in health
Artificial intelligence will have profound impacts across health systems, transforming
health care, public health, and research. Responsible AI can accelerate efforts toward
health systems being more resilient, sustainable, equitable, and person-centred. This
paper provides an overview of the background and current state of artificial intelligence
in health, perspectives on opportunities, risks, and barriers to success. The paper
proposes several areas to be explored for policy makers to advance the future of responsible
AI in health that is adaptable to change, respects individuals, champions equity,
and achieves better health outcomes for all.
The areas to be explored relate to trust, capacity building, evaluation, and collaboration.
This recognises that the primary forces that are needed to unlock the value from artificial
intelligence are people-based and not technical. The OECD is ready to support efforts
for co-operative learning and collective action to advance the use of responsible
AI in health.
