The Ethical Implications of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

Updated: Oct 20, 2023

There are many types of ethics that come into play with AI in healthcare. One set of ethics pertains to medical consent. As AI becomes more a part of everyday life, medical consent becomes an issue. This is because it is unclear who has responsibility for the patient’s medical consent when AI is making decisions or performing tasks without human input.

Another set of ethics deals with what information is collected by the AI and what it is used for. It is important to think about what is being collected and where that information goes. There are also ethics around who has access to the information gathered by AI.

An additional ethical implication is the responsibility associated with the developer of AI. This is the responsibility of ensuring that the AI is meeting the needs of the people that it is designed for.

Lastly, the responsibility associated with the ethical principles that are being used to guide the design of AI. These principles are used to help the developers of AI to ensure that the AI is not violating any ethical principles.

As more artificial intelligence is used in healthcare, there are several impacts on the professionals in this field. One impact is that it will change the kind of training they need to do their job. As AI becomes more integrated into the healthcare system, they will need to understand how AI works and what it can do. In addition, professionals will have to learn how to work with and alongside AI systems as their counterparts.

RemitOne™ works at the point of care as a front-end clean claims processing technology through voice-enabled Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies that not only capture the patient encounter but generate a structured medical record of the encounter and translate it into an electronic claim form that is submitted to the payor. This streamlined approach enables physicians to focus solely on their patients – without the burden of data entry and complex coding while knowing a high standard of regulatory compliance is upheld.

Contact our team at info@mccremitone.com to find out how you can utilize RemitOneTM to stay on top of the never-ending changes to coding, coverage, payment, and CMS regulations.
