Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is an area that is exploding! We constantly hear about its potential to transform how we work and care for patients. But what is AI/ML exactly? And how can quality improvement and patient safety (QIPS) practitioners and AI/ML experts combine efforts? In this three-hour interactive session, we will review how AI/ML is being integrated into healthcare processes and services, as this is where AI/ML and QIPS complementary skills will emerge. Rarely do AI/ML systems deliver services on their own. It is much more likely that clinical teams will interact with AI/ML systems to provide care. You will learn the fundamentals of AI/ML and how to determine when to incorporate AI/ML in your QIPS work. Through the use of examples, you will learn to identify how improvement science methods can help answer questions related to how AI/ML systems can support clinicians, and how their interaction can be optimized. You will walk away knowing how to critically appraise when AI/ML is of value for your project and how it should be used.
