Come hear Dr. Arnold Milstein surface important legal issues related to the application of artificial intelligence to healthcare. He will in particular be focusing on applications of computer vision to bedside care for improved patient safety. Dr. Milstein and others from PAC (Partnership in AI-Assisted Care) have recently published an interesting paper in this area.

Dr. Milstein is Professor of Medicine and the Director of the Clinical Excellence Research Center at Stanford University. The Center designs and demonstrates in multi-state locations scalable health care delivery innovations that provide better care with less healthcare spending.

His research spans positive value outlier assessment, human-centered healthcare design, and in partnership with Stanford’s AI Lab the development of technology-based cognitive aids to boost the yield from healthcare spending.

Before joining Stanford’s faculty, he founded a national healthcare performance improvement firm that he expanded globally after its acquisition by Mercer. He subsequently co-founded three nationally influential public benefit initiatives, including the Leapfrog Group and the Pacific Business Group on Health. As a Congressional MedPAC Commissioner, he originated two legislative changes to align healthcare provider revenue with value to patients.

He was elected to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Sciences and co-chaired its analysis of opportunities to safely slow national health spending growth.
