Promise and Peril: How artificial intelligence is transforming health care

AI has enormous potential to improve the quality of health care, enable early diagnosis of diseases, and reduce costs. But if implemented incautiously, AI can exacerbate health disparities, endanger patient privacy, and perpetuate bias. STAT, with support from the Commonwealth Fund, explored these possibilities and pitfalls during the past year and a half, illuminating best practices while identifying concerns and regulatory gaps.

This report summarizes our findings, as well as recommendations we heard from caregivers, health care executives, academic experts, patient advocates, and others. It was written by STAT’s Erin Brodwin, a California-based health tech correspondent, and Casey Ross, national technology correspondent.
