Artificial Intelligence at UHN

The Accelerating the Adoption of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare research project builds on an impressive body of scholarship and research already taking place across University Health Network.

  • In 2019, The Michener Institute of Education at UHN developed the Artificial Intelligence in Health Care Certificate Program.
  • Michener’s in-house chiropody clinic uses AI tools to improve accuracy, consistency and objectivity of wound measurements, which in turn enhances the quality of care for our patients.
  • UHN’s clinical leaders are working with Vector Institute to develop AI tools that take aim at cardiovascular disease , Parkinson’s and other chronic diseases.
  • UHN’s cancer program and imaging departments are working with Vector Institute to develop algorithms that help improve diagnostic accuracy and speed. They are also part of a Vector-led Pathfinder Project to improve image quality .
