  Use of AI in healthcare improves the industry services. Discovering patterns from data using ML improves the decision making process. It allows the industry specialist to make data-driven and fact-based decisions. The use of ML models in Healthcare is continuously increasing but it proliferates the concerns of stakeholders due to complexity and black box functioning of ML models.

  Therefore Explainable AI approaches come into existence to make the ML model transparent and trustworthy. In this document a case study is represented in which the ML model is used to detect diabetes and for transparency Explainable AI approaches are defined to understand the AI system based on the concerns and queries [1] that would be raised by stakeholders. There are several approaches, libraries and packages that can be used to implement Explainable AI such as LIME [2], SHAP [3] etc. It allows the industry practitioner to use the right tools and approaches for making their AI system trustworthy and transparent.
