ACR Recognized Center for Healthcare-AI (ARCH-AI)

ACR Recognized Center for Healthcare-AI (ARCH-AI)The ACR Recognized Center for Healthcare-AI (ARCH-AI) set the guidelines for AI use in imaging interpretation and ensures radiology facilities are using AI safely and effectively. It is the first national artificial intelligence quality assurance program for radiology facilities designed to recognize adherence to best practices for use of AI in imaging interpretation. The program outlines expert consensus-based building blocks of infrastructure, processes and governance in AI implementation in real-world practice.

By working toward, and attesting to, compliance within the tenets of the program, participation in ARCH-AI can help radiology practices provide safe and effective implementation of AI products and help radiologists provide better patient care.

Radiology practices that complete the ARCH-AI process will receive an ACR Recognition badge to display in their waiting rooms and lobbies to demonstrate to their communities, patients, payers and referring physicians that they are committed to integrating AI in a safe, responsible manner that allows them to provide the best possible modern healthcare.

The criteria for a site to be considered an ARCH-AI site are:

  • Establishing an interdisciplinary AI governance group.
  • Maintaining an inventory of AI algorithms with detailed documentation.
  • Ensuring adherence to security and compliance measures.
  • Engaging in diligent review and selection of AI algorithms.
  • Documenting use cases and training procedures.
  • Monitoring algorithm performance, including safety and effectiveness.
  • Participating in the Assess-AI national AI registry for performance benchmarking.
