This seminar features three UNC faculty who will offer their perspectives on bias in medical algorithms. Dr. Gibson, a nephrologist, will discuss race corrections for estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Dr. Goralski, Pulmonary/Critical Care, will discuss bias in pulse oximeter and pulmonology function tests. Dr. Seashore, Associate Chief Medical Informatics Officer for UNC Health, will discuss how UNC Health is approaching AI for clinical use, particularly when bias is “baked-in” to Epic@UNC.
