Summary of the Project:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to become a major part of health care. This team will look at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) reimbursement data for six AI-enabled applications to provide the first causal evidence of the impact of AI-enabled clinical software on health care utilization, spending, and health outcomes. The findings may be of immediate and long-term use to CMS and other payers as they determine reimbursement policies, as well as health systems and clinicians considering adopting AI applications.
