Michael D. Abramoff, MD, PhD, is a fellowship-trained retina specialist, computer scientist and entrepreneur. Dr. Michael Abramoff, MD, PhD, (Gold Fellow, ARVO and Fellow, IEEE) is the Robert C. Watzke, Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa, with a joint appointment in the College of Engineering. Dr. Abramoff is also Founder and Executive Chairman of Digital Diagnostics, the Autonomous AI diagnostics company that was the first in any field of medicine to get FDA clearance for an autonomous AI, where the AI makes a medical decision without human oversight, and which, in primary care, it can instantaneously diagnose diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema at the point of care. Dr. Abramoff developed an ethical foundation for autonomous AI that was used during the design, validation, of AI and regulatory and reimbursement pathways for autonomous AI. The results of randomized controlled trials show that it increases clinician productivity, lowers cost, and improves health equity, patient outcomes, and care access. Finally, he is founder of the Healthcare AI coalition, representing many healthcare AI companies, and a founding member and treasurer of FDA’s Collaborative Community on Ophthalmic Imaging. As the author of over 400 peer-reviewed publications in this field, he has been cited over 47,000 times (h-index 80), and is the inventor on 25 issued patents and many patent applications. Dr. Abramoff has mentored dozens of engineering graduate students, ophthalmology residents, and retina fellows. His passion is to use autonomous AI to improve the productivity and accessibility of healthcare.
