Regulatory Head of Global Software Standards, Philips;
Co-Chair, CTA Artificial Intelligence in Health Care Working Group

Pat Baird works at Philips as the Head of Global Software Standards. Pat likes to think of his job as “Policy Engineering” – understanding the unmet needs (and frustrations) of regulators and developers, and developing standards, whitepapers, and training to meet those needs. Past roles have included software developer, engineering manager, project manager, lead engineer, and Director of Risk Management before getting involved in regulatory & standards. He co-chairs over 10 committees at AdvaMed, AAMI, MITA, Xavier, CTA, and others on topics such as agile software development, cloud services for a regulated environment, and multiple committees on artificial intelligence in healthcare.
