Commonly Well Announces the Formation of an Advisory Panel to Responsibly Guide the Integration of AI into Recovery Management and Addiction Treatment Services

Posted byWritten by David

We are thrilled to announce the distinguished Advisory Panel that will play a crucial role in our product development. They’ll be overseeing the implementation of valuable artificial intelligence (AI) into our Recovery IntelligenceTM technology for addiction care, social care, and recovery support services.

The formation of this panel underscores our commitment to our core values of safety, privacy, ethics, and trust, as we tap into the transformative powers of AI to deliver Precision Recovery Intelligence to care providers.

Our Vision: Human-First Precision Recovery Intelligence

AI’s potential to impact every aspect of society, including addiction care and recovery support, is immense and undeniable. At Commonly Well, we are committed to harnessing this potential responsibly. Our vision is to integrate the latest generative AI tools into our proprietary Recovery Intelligence® technology, transforming the way individualized treatment and recovery plans are created and implemented. And that’s just the starting point. 

Scope and Responsibilities of the Advisory Panel

The Advisory Panel consists of six experts from healthcare, behavioral health, technology, cyber security, product design, bioethics, and philosophy. They will lend their expertise to guide our strategies and ensure the responsible development and application of AI technologies such as machine learning and natural language processing.

Panel members will engage in a rigorous review process, from the initial prototyping through extended testing phases, culminating in a Beta version that meets our high standards for a production-ready release sometime early next year. 

Our Commitment to Ethical Innovation

As we advance our capabilities, including the integration of AI with the Recovery Capital Index® (RCI) and other assessment tools, we will prioritize the confidentiality and protection of our customers’ sensitive data. Our approach is one of cautious optimism, backed by a responsible and ethical framework for innovation. We’ve also chosen to work with Microsoft, OpenAI, and Snowflake to bring the best in class data architecture and protection to this project. 

Our Objective: Empowering Providers with AI-Enhanced Data Analytics

Our goal is to unveil a web-based Data App embedded with generative AI, capable of crafting personalized recovery plans that will streamline the treatment process, enhance patient engagement, and ultimately improve care outcomes. We believe this recovery planning tool will reduce the time it takes providers to create these complicated plans, opening the opportunity for more shared development of the plans and ultimately, more time for provider and patient to meaningfully connect in the care process. 

Development and Release Lifecycle

In collaboration with our external partners – Data Culture for data engineering and Astrato for GenAI integration – we are on a trajectory towards a customer-ready product by February 1, 2024. The development lifecycle will include comprehensive testing and review at each stage by both internal staff and the Advisory Panel.
