About the Author

Anthony Chang

Anthony C. Chang MD, MBA, MPH, MS After his cardiology training at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with his research interest in mathematics and chaos theory in biomedicine, Dr. Anthony Chang was an attending cardiologist in the cardiovascular intensive care unit of Boston Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. Throughout his career as a pediatric cardiac intensive care physician, he has been interested in applications of biomedical data to decision-making. He completed his Masters of Science (MS) in Data Science with a sub-specialization in artificial intelligence from Stanford School of Medicine.

He is currently the Chief Intelligence and Innovation Officer and Medical Director of the Heart Failure Program at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. He is the founder and medical director of the Medical Intelligence and Innovation Institute (MI3) that is supported by the Sharon Disney Lund Foundation. The institute, founded in 2015, is dedicated to the introduction and implementation of artificial intelligence in medicine and was the first institute of its kind in a hospital. He intends to build a clinician-computer scientist interface with a nascent society (the Medical Intelligence Society) and is the editor-in-chief of Intelligence-based Medicine, the accompanying journal for his book, Intelligence-Based Medicine: Artificial Intelligence and Human Cognition in Clinical Medicine and Healthcare. He is the organizing chair for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIMed) meetings around the world, the largest and most comprehensive clinician-led meetings that focus on applications of artificial intelligence in medicine and the dean of the nascent American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM). He is also the founding president of the Medical Intelligence Society (MIS).
