AI in clinical practice: positive outcomes dominate but questions linger, study finds.🔬
🔬 A recent study analyzed randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to assess the performance of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms in clinical practice.
💡 The focus was to understand the clinical relevance of AI, its impact on care management and medical decision-making, while identifying areas that need further exploration.
⚕️ However, despite high approval rates for AI-enabled medical devices, only a few have been put through prospective RCT evaluations. Certain devices were found to underperform when deployed, leading to multiple incorrect alerts.
📊 Among the 84 RCTs included in this study, the majority were associated with gastroenterology. A significant proportion of these trials were conducted in the United States and China.
❗While a high success rate of AI-based medical devices strengthens their credibility, the authors caution that this could also reflect the nascent state of the field and possible publication bias.
✏️ Based on my expertise, diverse and extensive research, especially multi-center RCTs integrating clinically meaningful endpoints, will be crucial for truly harnessing the power of AI in healthcare.
