The Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation has supported the development of fundamental standards for artificial intelligence systems in clinical medicine. The initiator of their creation was the profile subcommittee called Artificial Intelligence in Health Care (ПК01 / ТК164), a member of the technical committee TK 164 Artificial Intelligence, based on the RVC.
According to the National Strategy for the Development of Artificial Intelligence until 2030, creating conditions for the use of AI in health care is one of the essential tasks to improve the living standards of the population. The problem of trust in medical intelligent systems and barriers to AI use in medical diagnostics can be removed by standardizing the requirements for test methods for critical smart systems and criteria for confirming their compliance with established requirements.
The initiative to create standards for implementing AI systems in clinical medicine belongs to ПК 01/ТК 164. The subcommittee was organized in January 2020 based on the Diagnostic and Telemedicine Center, headed by Sergei Morozov. The decision of the Ministry of Health suggests that the work on the standardization of AI in clinical medicine is supported at the state level.
Following the National Standardization Program for 2020 approved by Rosstandart, ПК 01 will develop drafts of six standards on various aspects of AI functioning in clinical medicine. Two of them will be fully finished by the end of this year.
