This program is a must for anyone whose practice touches upon medicine, from personal injury to contract negotiations.  

The practice of medicine has witnessed significant change in recent years, from the privacy requirements mandated by HIPAA to the conversion to electronic medical records. These advancements have presented many novel legal issues and problems. 

There is another metamorphous taking place – with much less fanfare – that will forever change the practice of medicine. 

Healthcare providers are increasingly relying upon artificial intelligence (AI) to serve the medical needs of their patients. From computers providing diagnosis to reading diagnostic imaging, the applications are endless.

 There is no crystal ball, however, showing us the future.

Using AI generates medical and legal risk since not all of the conceivable outcomes utilizing this technology are foreseeable. 

This cutting-edge CLE program will examine artificial intelligence and its applications in medicine.  

Following a discussion of the inner workings of AI and how the system gains its knowledge, our expert panel will provide an overview of AI’s many applications in everyday life. The panel analyzes the technology’s use in medicine and the many legal issues presented by its adoption in a tort and contractual context. An orthopedic surgeon will demonstrate how AI-aided robotic surgery works in the operating room, and the panel will wrap up with a discussion of the regulatory and practical problems presented by the technology.
