Comments Requested by Nov. 15 To Inform Upcoming Research on Impact of Healthcare Algorithms on Racial Disparities

1 Nov 2021 7:19 PM | Deborah Hodges (Administrator)

Healthcare algorithms are frequently used to guide decision making for the direct care of patients and for population management. An AHRQ project is reviewing published research on: how algorithms and algorithm-informed decision tools can introduce racial or ethnic bias into care; how the use of algorithms affect racial/ethnic disparities in access to and quality of care and health outcomes; strategies to avoid bias in algorithms; and standards for the development of equitable algorithms. AHRQ is accepting public comment on the key questions that will inform this evidence review. Access the draft key questions and the online form to provide comments by 11:59 pm ET Nov. 15.
