Safety, Quality and Ethics Program

Ensuring that those accessing the health system receive safe and ethical care from AI-enabled services.

There is clear evidence that when poorly designed, implemented or used, digital health systems can lead to patient harm. The full benefits of AI will not be realised unless it can be safely, effectively and ethically integrated into clinical and consumer practice.

This Program ensures that our AI Alliance research programs are safe, effective, and ethical, and that they contribute to our understanding of risks and risk management.

The AI Alliance will also undertake critically needed research into AI safety and ethical issues and support rapid translation of new evidence, as well as developing and evaluating targeted responses to incidents arising from AI development, implementation, and operations.

Together, the outcomes of this Program will set the national agenda for safety, quality and ethics governance for AI in healthcare.
