Artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) medical devices are able to optimise their performance by learning from past experience. In healthcare, such devices are already applied within controlled settings in image analysis systems to detect conditions like diabetic retinopathy, for instance. However, the development and application of these devices raise technical and social concerns, which have regulatory implications. If continuous risk-monitoring is required to support the use of AI/ML medical devices in a learning healthcare system, robust and responsive regulatory mechanisms are needed.
