For Bill of Health, the blog of The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School Hannah van Kolfschooten wrote a blog post on the most important health rights implications of the Council of Europe’s draft Convention on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for health patients.

The AI Convention aims to protect fundamental rights in the context of AI and is expected to be a globally influential convention. The blog post outlines the background, scope, and purpose of the AI Convention, emphasizing its focus on protecting the rights of individuals affected by AI systems. It highlights the potential challenges and risks associated with medical AI, such as system errors, biased datasets, privacy concerns, and impacts on existing health practices and patient rights. It then explains how the AI Convention could address these issues by regulating the entire lifecycle of AI systems, introducing enforceable rights for patients, and emphasizing the importance of non-discrimination, privacy and data protection, transparency, and the right to redress for harm. The Council of Europe's previous work in protecting the health and human rights is also emphasized, suggesting that the AI Convention has the potential to promote health and patients' rights globally as AI becomes more prevalent in healthcare.
