CSA Guides on AI in Healthcare
January 06, 2022
Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) released
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Healthcare.
Drafted by the Health Information Management Working Group, the report provides
an overview of the ways in which AI and machine learning (ML) can be used to
bring about major transformations in healthcare while addressing the challenges
their use presents, and offering guidance for how to best incorporate them into
healthcare systems now and in the future.
The document shares examples, use cases, and treatment methods for how AI,
machine learning, and data mining can be effectively utilized throughout a
healthcare system, including in research, diagnosis, and treatment. It also
addresses ethical and legal challenges, bias in AI, and how it relates to
telehealth, big data, and cloud computing in healthcare.
“This is the time when healthcare leaders should be accelerating their use of
AI, which when used with cloud computing has the potential for drastically
improving patient outcomes. But, as with any new technology entering the
healthcare arena, there are several challenges, among them a lack of data
exchange, regulatory compliance requirements, and patient and provider adoption.
This paper offers a summary of the areas in which healthcare can benefit, while
providing healthcare delivery organizations guidance on how to best address the
challenges their use brings,” said Dr. James Angle, the paper’s lead author and
co-chair of the Health Information Management Working Group.
emergence of AI as a tool for better healthcare offers opportunities to improve
patient and clinical outcomes and reduce costs. The ever-increasing volume and
complexity of healthcare data provide an ideal environment for the application
of both AI and ML, and there are several applications where these technologies
can deliver an incredible value. Even so, healthcare delivery organizations must
evaluate each to determine if and how they can be adopted,” said Michael Roza, a
contributor to the paper.
The CSA Health Information Management Working Group aims to provide a direct
influence on how health information service providers deliver secure cloud
solutions (services, transport, applications, and storage) to their clients, and
to foster cloud awareness within all aspects of healthcare and related
industries. Individuals interested in becoming involved in Health Information
Management future research and initiatives are invited to join the working
