Five critical quality criteria for artificial intelligence-based prediction models

Eur Heart J. 2023 Dec 7;44(46):4831-4834. doi: 10.1093/eurheartj/ehad727.


To raise the quality of clinical artificial intelligence (AI) prediction modelling studies in the cardiovascular health domain and thereby improve their impact and relevancy, the editors for digital health, innovation, and quality standards of the European Heart Journal propose five minimal quality criteria for AI-based prediction model development and validation studies: complete reporting, carefully defined intended use of the model, rigorous validation, large enough sample size, and openness of code and software.

Keywords: Artificial intelligence; Diagnosis; Digital health; Prediction; Prognosis.
