Lukasz Mazur, professor in radiation Oncology and director of the Division of Healthcare Engineering, along with co-principal investigator Larry Marks, assistant dean for Organizational Health and Quality, were awarded a $1.3-million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

The three-year project titled, Development and Assessment of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-Enhanced Pre-treatment Peer-review Process to Improve Patient Safety in Radiation Oncology, aims to develop and assess the effectiveness of innovative artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) algorithms focused on radiation therapist (RT) providers’ variability in key treatment planning steps, as well as assess the impact of the intervention into the RT work system on patient safety.

This will be first-of-its-kind clinical trial of AI/ML application to enhance pre-treatment peer review with a focus on physician variability and patient safety.
