The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is seeking public comment on clinical algorithms in medical practice that could have the effect of introducing bias or influencing access to care, quality of care or health outcomes for minorities or socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals. Comments can be entered directly on the AHRQ’s website up to May 4, 2021.

The AHRQ lists 11 questions inviting comments on topics such as algorithms that use race or ethnicity as a variable; use of social determinants of health (SDOH) in clinical algorithms; which clinical algorithms have evidence indicating contribution to health disparities; and what are developing standards on how to develop, validate or update standards to avoid bias.
