Orange, CA – I have been attending monthly MI3 meetings at CHOC Hospital in Orange County, CA. MI3 is the Medical Intelligence and Innovation Institute. If you are in healthcare or interested in innovation these meetings on the third Monday of the month from 4 to 6 p.m. are worth attending.

In this video Kevin McDonald interviews Dr. Anthony Chang, the Chief Intelligence and Innovation Officer of CHOC Hospital on data science, artificial intelligence and the other innovations being promoted at CHOC.

The institute was started with funding from a Disney heir. The Sharon Disney Lund Medical Intelligence and Innovation Institute (MI3) at CHOC Children’s is a unique and first-of-its-kind institute that creates, focuses and executes projects in the areas of intelligence and innovation in pediatric medicine. These two interrelated disciplines, extremely limited in development in the pediatric realm, hold great promise to change the trajectory of pediatric care around the world.

MI3 aims to foster robust developments in artificial intelligence methodologies, as well as innovative advances in emerging areas such as genomic medicine, regenerative medicine, robotics, nanotechnology and medical applications/devices. MI3 is dedicated to empowering data intelligence and medical innovation at CHOC, and driving innovation leadership in the international pediatrics community.
