We will cover various ethical issues raised from the use of AI in the future, and other important considerations such as: regulations, data privacy, cybersecurity and data protection, and AI in contrast to public health policy aims.
We will also apply the application of new AI technologies to stakeholders’ views of value, including clinicians, patients, vendors, payors, and even the investment community and capital markets.
Throughout the course, we will be reviewing real-world examples, and other thought leaders’ views and articles. Most of the weekly sessions will also include a dedicated discussion of the “Applications” and potential “Implications” for the use of AI in healthcare covered in that session’s topics.
On completion of this program you will have a comprehensive view of privacy and what it takes to implement privacy successfully in your organization.
Upon completion you will be awarded a McMaster University – NIHI ePrivacy Certificate of Completion. A Certificate of Completion is a non-academic certificate acknowledging that the recipient has completed a minimum of 30 hours of education and has successfully completed the Opening and Closing Questionnaires that assesses the individual’s learning.
