  • Electronic health record company Epic launched an open-source tool on Wednesday that will allow health care providers to test and validate artificial intelligence models. The tool is free and available through the public coding website Github, where health systems can add it to their electronic health record systems, said Corey Miller, vice president of research and development at Epic. The tool will allow health systems to evaluate the performance of any AI model that integrates with any EHR, whether it’s from Epic or not. Epic is calling the tool the AI Trust and Assurance Suite. Using components from another open-source AI tool, the suite can audit machine learning models for discrimination and bias. The tool was designed to be flexible and evolve as standards, techniques, and approaches develop. (Article here)
