DSI Leadership



DSI Spring Summit 2018

ACR DSI’s second Data Science Summit: The Economics of AI in Health Care was held jointly with the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) on May 30, 2018 to explore the opportunities and challenges associated with integrating AI into the economics of heath care.

This spring’s Summit included rich discussions of a variety of economics topics and gave us a unique opportunity to come together to discuss reimbursement, regulatory and implementation issues. The details on our next Summit will be available on the website later this year. If you are interested in participating, please let us know at
