Scientists at CSIRO (Australia's Government Science & Industrial Research Organisation) are developing a machine learning tool which provides an
early warning to medical professionals of a patient’s deteriorating
The study, published in Nature: Scientific Reports, showed the early warning
deterioration alerts can be set to monitor patients two to eight hours before
they are triggered by current clinical criteria.
CSIRO's Dr Dr Sankalp Khanna says, 'Until now there hasn’t been a way to harness all the
data to predict patient health. This new tool has the potential to
transform the day-to-day functioning of health systems'.
