Rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) has permeated various aspects of our lives. Its usage in the field of healthcare has shown significant improvement in the efficiency and efficacy of numerous aspects of healthcare services. However, wide applications of AI technologies in healthcare are also joined by ethical challenges threatening the privacy and security of public health. This study conducts a content analysis on primary organization and government documents related to ethical issues of AI in healthcare. While the transparency and explainability of AI technologies have been granted a great amount of focus, more region-specific discussions are in need. Inclusiveness and equity of access to AI technology in healthcare should also be considered more by regulators and practitioners when proposing future standards and legislation frameworks.
