Guidelines for Using AI-Based Tools

Interdisciplinary teams of stakeholders from Johns Hopkins Medicine and Johns Hopkins University are meticulously curating guidelines for responsible integration of AI across the enterprise. With a deliberate and thoughtful approach, these groups are navigating the complexities of this evolving technological landscape. 

As these groups work to curate more specific guidelines and recommendations, please review the general guidelines below before engaging with or promoting the use of a new AI tool. 

Risk Management

  • Remember AI results are only as good as their prompts, so human review of AI answers is requisite; AI can make mistakes! 
  • Manage risks associated with AI implementation, including legal, financial, and reputational risks

Ethics, Equity, & Accessibility

  • Consider privacy, data security, bias mitigation, and transparency 
  • Respect and promote diversity and inclusion of different groups and consider the potential impact of AI on healthcare access, affordability, and equity

Data Governance

  • Implement robust data governance policies to ensure the quality, integrity, and privacy of data used for development and deployment 
  • Maintain compliance with regulatory agencies and policies while enabling cross-disciplinary data sharing and collaboration

Privacy & Ethical Data Use

  • Protect the personal data and information of individuals and organizations
  • Respect the consent and preferences of data subjects

Transparency & Interpretability

  • Prioritize development of AI models that provide reasoning behind AI-driven decisions  
  • Ensure models produce results that are easily understood  

Validation & Regulation

  • Validate AI algorithms rigorously through clinical trials and real-world testing to assess their safety, efficacy, and generalizability before widespread deployment  
  • Engage with regulatory bodies to ensure compliance with relevant regulations 

Continuous Monitoring & Improvement

  • Detect and address issues such as biases, errors, and performance degradation over time 
  • Incorporate feedback from faculty, staff, students, patients, and clinicians to iteratively improve AI algorithms

Interdisciplinary Collaboration

  • Foster collaboration between researchers, clinicians, data scientists, and other relevant stakeholders  
  • Ensure AI solutions address the enterprise’s needs effectively and responsibly  

Education & Training

  • Offer education and training programs covering topics such as AI fundamentals, healthcare applications of AI, ethical considerations, and best practices for AI implementation  
  • Promote a culture of lifelong learning and interdisciplinary collaboration
