Coalition for Health AI (CHAI) announces founding partners

CHAI also announces a collaborative partnership with the National Academy of Medicine

Today, the Coalition for Health AI (CHAI), Inc. announced its initial group of founding partners committing expertise, alignment and resources to support CHAI’s mission to be the trusted source of Responsible AI in Health that serves all. CHAI founding partners include leading non-profit research, behavioral science, patient advocacy, and community-based provider organizations as well as leading commercial technology and healthcare organizations.

AI shows promise to deliver significant value to healthcare professionals, organizations, and patients. CHAI aspires to contribute to best practices with the testing, deployment, and evaluation of AI systems. This work will engage many stakeholders, promoting discovery and careful experimentation, and sharing AI innovations in healthcare, including methods that leverage traditional machine learning and more recent developments in generative AI.

“CHAI was established first by a few – and then hundreds – of passionate, diverse and expert volunteers who share the belief that healthcare must lead as an industry in delivering the promise of AI that is trusted, responsible and representative,” said CHAI CEO Dr. Brian Anderson. “I’m proud of the broad support we continue to build to get from vision and community to action at a scale that will make a difference. This includes our founding partners and the next phase as we engage with a growing base of more than 1500 member organizations including hundreds of health systems from academic medical centers to rural, critical access and tribal health centers.”

National Academy of Medicine Partnership

CHAI today also announced a partnership with the National Academy of Medicine to support and advance NAM’s Artificial Intelligence Code of Conduct (AICC) project. The groups will share expertise and align work group efforts wherever possible to support and advance the AICC project, a NAM initiative to provide a guiding framework to ensure that AI algorithms and their application in health, health care, and biomedical science perform accurately, safely, reliably, and ethically in the service of better health for all.  Additionally, much of the future direction in CHAI’s working groups will be informed by guidance from NAM’s AICC.  This collaboration represents a unique opportunity for national leaders across disciplines to work together to advance trustworthy artificial intelligence in health, health care, and biomedical science.

“The Coalition for Health AI’s announcement today of its founding partners and their joint commitment to the advancement of responsible application of AI on behalf of better health and health care is a welcome development,” said Senior Advisor to the National Academy of Medicine, Laura Adams.  “It represents the sort of leadership necessary to ensure that the NAM AI Code of Conduct (AICC) work is translated into real-world practice. AI in healthcare today is unprecedented in terms of speed, scale, ubiquity, and democratization. It requires commitment to unprecedented levels of collaboration and collective learning, both which are emblematic of the NAM/CHAI collaborative goals and partnership.”
