Call for Papers for the Special Issue: Artificial Intelligence in Medical Data Governance
December 02,2022

Aims and Scope

In recent years, with the explosive growth of medical data and the in-depth impact of information technology with artificial intelligence as the core on medical industry, data management and application capabilities have become one of the core capabilities of hospitals, and the level of data governance will surely become a direct manifestation of the comprehensive strength of a hospital. With the help of artificial intelligence technology, the research and practice of realizing hospital data governance is still in its infancy. Data governance provides a more standardized model for data accumulation, such as continuous collection, precipitation, and classification; medical artificial intelligence requires deep learning evolution through a large number of medical data operations, so it is inseparable from the support of big data technology and data governance.
