Healthcare institutions are attempting to move away from a rules-based approach to clinical care, toward a more data-driven model of care. To achieve this, machine learning algorithms are being developed to aid physicians in clinical decision making. However, a key limitation in the adoption and widespread deployment of these algorithms into clinical practice is the lack of rigorous assessments and clear evaluation standards. A framework for the systematic benchmarking and evaluation of biomedical algorithms – assessed in a prospective manner that mimics a clinical environment – is needed to ensure patient safety and clinical efficacy.
