VA implements AI to improve veteran care

The Department of Veterans Affairs implemented a new artificial intelligence strategy late September for the delivery of health care and benefits, and is set to serve as an ethical guideline for the use of AI technology throughout the department.

The strategy was designed to meet four major objectives: “to use existing AI to improve outcomes and experiences for veterans, increase VA AI capabilities, increase veteran and stakeholder trust in AI and to build upon the VA’s existing partnerships across agencies and industry.”

For example, meeting these objectives would potentially see the improvement of patient outcomes through the use of new computer vision technology, which would allow medical practitioners to identify certain diseases sooner.

Additionally, by using AI to build upon the VA’s profession partnerships, the department may be able to partake in more research studies and contribute to medical academic journals.

“Artificial intelligence has the capability to transform how our veterans access the critical care they need,” Dr. Lynne Parker, director of the National AI Initiative Office said in a VA press release.
