CSA Guides on AI in Healthcare

January 06, 2022

The 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.

“The 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 group.
