Algorithmic Bias in Healthcare Initiative
Recently, our researchers published an article in Science that showed significant racial bias in a widely deployed health-care algorithm that selects patients for a managed care plan. Were that bias to be eliminated, the number of African American patients selected would nearly double. Working with the developer of the algorithm, we found solutions to dramatically reduce the bias and improve the care of many patients.
CAAI is happy to offer resources to health systems, agencies, and other nonprofits to analyze and assess their algorithms for racial bias. If you would be interested in working with us to find ways to reduce any bias in your systems, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
