AI Labs for Patient Safety

Protected health information requires special security. While research use-cases of health care data can generally use de-identified materials, QI and clinical operational use-cases may occasionally require the use of patient and clinician identifiers. These use-cases also carry a wider array of stakeholders beyond publishers and funding agencies and can include department chairs, division chiefs and college leadership. We created the AI Labs for Patient Safety, or ALPS, to address this need.
