UMass Chan Medical School and MITRE, operator of federally funded research and development centers, announced the establishment of the Health AI Assurance Laboratory, a collaborative initiative to advance health artificial intelligence in the public interest. The initiative is at the forefront of efforts in the United States, and the first in Massachusetts, to ensure AI technology in health care is safe and effective for everyone using it. 

The Health AI Assurance Laboratory team is led by Program in Digital Medicine founder David McManus, MD'02, MSc'12, the Richard M. Haidack Professor of Medicine, chair and professor of medicine; Adrian Zai, MD, PhD, MPH, associate professor of quantitative & population health sciences; and Miles Thompson, AI assurance solutions lead at MITRE. The team will work with collaborators from education, health care systems, private industry, nonprofit organizations and public agencies to evaluate specific health AI applications. The program builds both on UMass Chan’s Center for Advancing Point of Care Technologies as well as UMass Chan’s experience with the National Institutes of Health Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics, or RADx, program.
