Vanderbilt and Duke Awarded Moore Foundation Grant to Improve Oversight of AI Technology in Health Care Systems

Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) and Duke University School of Medicine were awarded a $1.25 million grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for the project “Measuring Artificial Intelligence (AI) Maturity in Healthcare Organizations.”  Working with the Coalition for Health AI (CHAI) and the University of Iowa, a team of experts will leverage the grant to develop a maturity model framework. The project leads are Peter Embí, MD, MS, and Laurie Novak, PhD, MHSA, from VUMC; and Michael Pencina, PhD, and Nicoleta Economou, PhD, from Duke. This framework will outline the essential capabilities that health systems must establish to ensure they are well-prepared for the trustworthy utilization of AI models.
