What is

It’s an invitation-only conference for 70 innovators from health plans and healthcare providers who are leveraging AI and ML to transform clinical outcomes and control costs. They’ll be joined by 12 AI solutions experts. Each session is a conversation, not a presentation. We dig into real-world use cases and ask hard questions. Our solutions experts (sponsors) are AI and ML experts who are there to listen and brainstorm with you.

War Stories

A solution provider will moderate stories from 2 panelists about an AI or ML initiative that was a great success or dismal failure and answer questions about what they learned. No podium, no stage, no PowerPoint.

Panel Sessions

3-person panel discussion on a single topic moderated by an expert solution provider. Questions and conversation will follow. No podium, no stage, no PowerPoint.


A single expert walking us through a topic they know intimately, followed by great questions and different perspectives from both attendees and solution providers. No podium, no stage, no PowerPoint.

The best practices in healthcare for using AI and ML for everything from revenue cycle to population health modeling are changing rapidly and even large organizations don’t have many true experts.

Common Sense AI Healthcare 2020 brings together expert tech vendors and digital transformation leaders from healthcare to share what’s working and what isn’t, and what’s next.

The Common Sense AI Healthcare agenda has been developed with input from data scientists and digital transformation leaders in health plans and health systems as well as HealthTech companies building the future of AI.


How Companies Build Useful Chatbots and Keep Them Smart

  • Chatbots are the entry point for many organizations into the universe of “AI”.
  • They are also often dismissed as annoyingly limited and not at all intelligent.
  • We’ll discuss how organizations build useful, not-annoying chatbots, and evolve them to stay that way.

Evaluating Human-in-the-Loop AI Systems

  • Many of the most exciting applications of AI are those that serve as a “force multiplier” for your human subject matter experts.
  • How are companies developing AI systems designed from the start to work with a human as an integral component of a complex workflow instead of an afterthought?
  • We’ll discuss some ways you can evaluate how well an AI system is built to be effective with a human in the loop.

Value Based Contracts Use Cases for AI in 2020

  • AI is already beginning to transform how participants in shared savings arrangements coordinate and build trust.
  • We’ll explore the opportunities and the pitfalls of AI initiatives in the context of Value Based Contracts.


Balancing Ethics and Efficiency in AI Adoption

  • AI is inherently powerful, and power corrupts. AI is also notoriously susceptible to the bias of model builders.
  • Is HIPAA compliance sufficient to ensure AI systems don’t trample individual rights including expectations of privacy?

Implications of Emotional Intelligence in AI Systems

  • There are now AI systems being developed to detect and decode human emotions from text, audio and video.
  • How will this be used (and potentially abused) in healthcare in the near future?

Will Developers Become Irrelevant?

  • As low code development platforms proliferate, will coders be replaced by data scientists and subject matter experts?
  • How will the developer role likely shift in the next 5 years, and what should you be doing to prepare for it?

Building the AI-Augmented Workforce

  • Recruiting, training and retaining the people who work with and alongside AI systems will require new management strategies.
  • Some of these strategies will themselves be made possible by AI systems. We’ll discuss how companies are preparing to win in the AI-augmented future.


No More Black Boxes: What The Shift to Explainable AI Means

  • How much should you trust AI systems that hide their decision making process in a “black box”?
  • A new generation of AI systems allow users to understand how results were produced, making them more accountable, auditable and trustworthy.
  • We’ll walk through several examples of explainable AI systems and discuss the implications for healthcare.

Trends in Algorithmic Marketing and AI in Healthcare

  • We’ll look at recent trends in AI enabled decision engines, and the implications for both challenges and opportunities in healthcare data science.

Preparing Your Organization for Strategic Adoption of AI

  • Companies should explore hypothesis-driven scenarios to understand where and when disruption is likely to occur and which business lines or practice areas will be impacted.
  • How to design AI pilots and POCs that test how successful you may be operating in a particular role within a data- or IoT-based ecosystem.
