Epic Releases Open-Source AI Validation Tool for Health Systems

Summary of article from Fierce Healthcare, by Heather Landi:

Epic has launched an open-source tool to help healthcare organizations test and monitor artificial intelligence (AI) models. Available for free on GitHub, the AI validation software suite can be integrated with electronic health record (EHR) systems and used to validate AI models from various sources. The tool automates data collection and mapping, providing near real-time metrics and analysis. However, it currently does not validate generative AI models, although Epic plans to expand its capabilities in the future. The Health AI Partnership (HAIP), which includes Duke Health, Mayo Clinic, and Kaiser Permanente, intends to use the tool for local AI model validation.
