Top of Mind Exchange: AI falls within the CCM’s annual Top of Mind program. The full program includes a virtual roundtable series, a research report, a webinar, and a virtual summit — all of which explore the impact of the pandemic on health system innovation priorities and in particular three essential technologies: telehealth, revenue cycle management, and AI.

The mission of the CCM is to connect and inspire leaders and innovators who want to advance health care and serve as a resource for information on the future of digital health. In keeping with this mission, Top of Mind Exchange: AI focused on structural bias in health care, methods for recognizing and combatting algorithmic bias, and imperatives for health system leaders responsible for data-backed decisions in 2021.

The CCM will publish an eBook summarizing the discussion and key takeaways. The eBook will be available for download from this page.
