Forecasting the Integration of AI into Health Care Compliance Programs

From Robinson Cole, by Kathleen Healy, Josh Yoo:

Healthcare entities need to incorporate AI standards into their compliance programs to manage and mitigate legal risks. Executive Order No. 14110 outlines key principles for AI including confidentiality, security, transparency, governance, and non-discrimination. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides a Risk Management Framework for AI and a playbook to help organizations manage AI risks. Key federal privacy and security laws like HIPAA and Section 5 will impact the use of AI in healthcare. It’s vital for healthcare entities to monitor evolving AI laws and regulations, inventory existing and upcoming AI use, educate themselves on updates, and adapt their compliance plans accordingly.
