Recent Developments in Artificial Intelligence and the Accompanying Liability Risks

By Joseph E. Fornadel, III, Wesley T. Moran

Imaging Technology News; Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology

As the FDA continues to clear AI-based algorithms at a steady pace, the medical field has become increasingly aware of the boundless gains in efficiency and access to care offered by artificial intelligence innovations. In articles for Imaging Technology News and Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology, associates Joe Fornadel and Wes Moran outline the expected benefits of AI for physicians and patients, while discussing potential liabilities as the courts have yet to grapple with medical AI.

The article notes that, as AI evolves, it has the potential to perform better than even the most skilled and knowledgeable physicians in certain fields. Benefits of medical AI innovation may include increased efficiency in treating and/or diagnosing patients by giving physicians the ability to focus on diagnoses and procedures that require greater skill and judgment; increased diagnostic accuracy; earlier detection of disease; improved treatment regimens; and lower healthcare risks. However, the authors add that there are several risks associated with integrating AI into medical devices used to diagnose and treat patients.

Fornadel and Moran write, “The use of AI is likely going to change the liability landscape,” describing considerations around potential liability for harm to patients, the unauthorized use of protected healthcare and HIPAA violations, and the potential for reduced physician and patient medical decision making.
