HDAA Town Hall: Responsible AI for Healthcare

In March, HDAA hosted a town hall on the ethical issues posed by artificial intelligence in healthcare. Most of our content is available only to HDAA members. However, because of the importance of this issue, we have made this recording accessible to all. Click here for more on this informative and timely proceeding.



HDAA is a volunteer organization comprising more than four thousand data and analytics practitioners throughout North America and abroad: academic medical centers, large and small healthcare providers, insurance companies, key government agencies, and public health organizations.

We are the professionals who produce the analytics that improve patient outcomes, track and reduce healthcare costs, and support medical research.

Once a year, we meet in person for a three-day conference to cement our relationships and renew our commitment to sharing information in the service of our profession. Throughout the year, we gather online via town halls, special interest group meetings and active online forums.
