In Russia, national standards for the use of artificial intelligence in the field of healthcare will be developed. The specialized subcommittee of SC 1 “Artificial Intelligence in Health Care” of the technical standardization committee TC 164 “Artificial Intelligence” will carry out the work on the draft standardization documents. The order of Rosstandart approved amendments to the structure of the technical committee.
Work on AI standards in the healthcare field will take place in several areas: clinical testing methodology, programs, and technical testing methods, risk management for pre-training programs, as well as a protocol for changing artificial intelligence algorithms. There will also be standards governing the requirements for the structure and procedure for using the data set for training and testing machine algorithms. The first editions of six national standards will be prepared as early as 2020.
The use of AI technologies in healthcare is a promising and rapidly developing area in the world. The accuracy and reliability of medical devices used in practice directly affect the safety of work and services in healthcare and the quality of the data obtained, and, therefore, the diagnostic value of the research and the effectiveness of medical care.
Leading healthcare organizations, IT companies, technology start-ups are invited to participate in the development of documents. The subcommittee has already included more than thirty participants: FSBI VNIIIMT of Roszdravnadzor, Samara State Medical University, GC Medsi, City Clinical Hospital No. 24 (Moscow), ExpertZdravService, Intellogic, Medical Electronic Data, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Philips Innovation Laboratories RUS and others.
