Newly Forming Task Forces
PATH is establishing four task forces to both provide member’s an opportunity to get involved and help achieve PATH’s mission and priorities. Task force membership is open to PATH members.
If you are interested in joining a task force please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are interested in participants that will take an ACTIVE role in a task force. If you already signed up for a task force at the recent PATH Summit you do not need to sign up again.
We are looking for leaders – if you may be interested in chairing a task force please email email@example.com.
The Technical and Clinical Standards and Guidelines Task Force will identify areas where standards or guidelines are needed to accelerate the implementation of artificial intelligence, automation and robotics in healthcare, review existing guidelines to see if changes are needed and recommend organizations that should be asked to perform the activities. These may cover clinical practices, public policies and industry standards. The group will not be developing their own guidelines but will identify what areas need to be addressed and what group could best provide such an effort. The result will be published in the journal Healthcare Transformation and distributed widely.
The Ethical Practices Task Force will develop a draft statement by PATH related to the ethical use of artificial intelligence, automation and robotics in healthcare and seek other organizations to co-sponsor or endorse the statement. It is critical to tackle this issue soon as it has already been raised in ways that may seriously impede innovation and progress.
The Membership Task Force will identify and recruit new members for PATH. This includes health institutions or systems, industry, academia, government agencies and individuals. They will also recommend activities of PATH that can be of greatest value to the memberships. The goal is to maintain a healthy mix of stakeholders in the membership and work of PATH.
Program Task Force provides suggestions for speakers and topics for upcoming PATH events including meetings, webinars and video casts.
