Renowned healthcare leader to be featured speaker at Bipartisan Policy Center Oct. 16 event
ATLANTA, October 16, 2019 – Emad Rizk, M.D., chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Cotiviti, will be a featured panelist today at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) event, “The Future of AI,” which will examine the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in the U.S. healthcare and financial systems and how public policy should adapt to changing realities.
Through Cotiviti’s participation in BPC’s AI work, Dr. Rizk will draw on his decades of analytics and leadership expertise to evaluate AI use cases and implications of policy across several areas in healthcare. “By fostering collaboration among providers, payers, policymakers, and other stakeholders, the Bipartisan Policy Center is providing a critical forum for leaders and innovators to work together and support the emergence of AI and other data-driven technologies to improve care,” said Dr. Rizk. “BPC’s work will provide great insights to help educate and inform federal policymakers on the role of artificial and augmented intelligence in healthcare.”
“As AI is adopted rapidly across healthcare and other sectors of our economy, all involved parties must align with public policy to fully harness the potential this technology offers,” said Dr. Bill Frist, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader and a BPC Senior Fellow. “Dr. Rizk’s expertise as well as tenure leading some of the biggest healthcare entities will be immensely valuable as BPC studies these issues.”
In addition to Dr. Rizk, the event will bring together Reps. Bill Foster (D-IL) and Will Hurd (R-TX), as well as Lynne Parker, Ph.D., assistant director of artificial intelligence, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Other high-level leaders will also join the event to discuss AI’s wide-scale adoption and implementation in healthcare and finance, and the potential industry and policy barriers to its emergence. The event will take place Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 10 a.m. ET at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Washington, D.C. headquarters.
