2017 Rome Lecture – Appification to AI and Health Care’s New ‘Iron Triangle’

Join Nicolas Terry, LLM, Hall Render professor of law and executive director of the William S. and Christine S. Hall Center for Law and Health at Indiana University, as he discusses health care policy in this “second machine age,” as the industry attempts to assimilate to not only patient-facing technologies such as medical apps but also to next generation technologies such as robotics and AI.


The intricacy of the impact of advanced information technologies on health care stakeholders will only increase as health care assimilates not only patient-facing technologies such as medical apps but also next generation technologies such as robotics and AI. Healthcare policy choices in this “second machine age” will possess a degree of complexity that will no longer be reducible (if they ever were) to policy binaries. Indeed, for students of health law and policy, the level of complexity should bring to mind our foundational approach to discussing health care law and policy; the Iron Triangle of access, quality, and cost containment.

Terry will discuss his proposal for an additional, “new” Iron Triangle to provide both a lens and a sorting mechanism for the issues that will arise. This triangle’s three points are Automation, Quality & Safety, and Empathy.
