Should Artificial Intelligence Augment Medical Decision Making? The Case for an Autonomy Algorithm.

A significant proportion of elderly and psychiatric patients do not have the capacity to make health care decisions. We suggest that machine learning technologies could be harnessed to integrate data mined from electronic health records (EHRs) and social media in order to estimate the confidence of the prediction that a patient would consent to a given treatment. We call this process, which takes data about patients as input and derives a confidence estimate for a particular patient's predicted health care-...

Defining compassion in the digital health age: protocol for a scoping review.

The notion of compassion and compassionate care is playing an increasingly important role in health professional education and in the delivery of high-quality healthcare.
