Bill of Rights for an Automated Society: The Health Care System

Please join CAP and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) for a discussion on the current and emergent uses of technology in the health care system as well as consumer products related to health.


12:00 - 1:30 PM EST

White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Director Eric Lander and Deputy Director for Science and Society Alondra Nelson recently announced that OSTP is engaging a wide array of stakeholders—in industry, academia, government, civil society, and the general public—in a national endeavor to make sure new and emerging data-driven technologies abide by the enduring values of American democracy.

OSTP is co-hosting six public events to promote public education and engagement on areas where data-driven technologies intersect with the lives of Americans. These events will bring together a variety of practitioners, advocates, and federal government officials to offer insights and analysis on the risks, harms, benefits, and policy opportunities of artificial intelligence and other automated technologies.

Please join the Center for American Progress and OSTP on November 23 for a virtual event. This discussion will explore current and emergent uses of technology in the health care system as well as consumer products related to health. Panelists will discuss the impact of new technologies on health disparities; health care access, delivery, and outcomes; and areas ripe for research and policymaking. The event will conclude with summary remarks about technology, equity, and rights.
