Gil Alterovitz, director of artificial intelligence at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), said more than 12 VA sites plan to pilot AI modules developed as part of the department’s AI “to-go” delivery model, FedScoop reported Friday. 

He announced in July 2020 that the development of an AI module that helps VA’s health facilities predict an individual’s risk for COVID-19.  

Alterovitz noted that VA’s medical centers and facilities have other use cases for those AI modules, which can be packaged as embeddable add-ons to current software. 

“We’re now using that to generalize and essentially created a new platform so that artificial intelligence research and development can be added as modules in the future,” Alterovitz said of the AI to-go delivery model at FedTalks.
