Our work covers a broad range of aims centered on the development and integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies that solve important, practical problems for patients, providers and health systems. 

We work with clinical, operational, and technical teams to advance the development of clinically relevant models, leveraging quality improvement, implementation science, design thinking, and traditional research methods.

We need to see more AI models and algorithms deployed in the real world

AIMed, October 2021

Dr. Steven Lin discusses what inspired him to create the Healthcare AI Applied Research Team and how to facilitate the deployment of AI in actual clinical settings.

"When a model performs well in an experimental setting, that doesn't mean it will perform in the real-world setting, and even if it does perform well, we need to know how it affects downstream physician and patient behaviors and the larger health system."

Words From Collaborators

"The collaboration with Stanford has been awesome from the start – really great, open dialogue, shared vision, creativity, thoughtfulness, and prioritization – we couldn’t have asked for more up to this point."

  • Srini Akkaraju MD, PhD
  • Co-Founder, Codex Health

"The team brings not only clinical expertise but also operational excellence. For our project, Dr. Sattler led the team to think through every aspect of the clinical workflow to ensure the best patient and provider experiences possible."

  • Jiayin Xue MD, MPH
  • Adjunct Professor, Clinical Excellence Research Center

"The high quality of the collaboration came from clearly defined goals followed by structured meetings and deliverables that carried the work forward. Research is often ambiguous and finding the right dynamics on a team can be a big challenge, but I never experienced this during the collaboration with HEA3RT."
