How Can We Harness Artificial Intelligence to Improve Critical Care?

Posted by Heather Hitchcock on Jan 23, 2020 10:48:00 AM

The role of artificial intelligence in healthcare generates a lot of excitement, but oftentimes one key element is being overlooked: How to unlock the data that will drive AI. 

Nowhere is the problem more evident than in critical care units, where hundreds of thousands of data samples are generated by a single patient every hour. Yet, 99.9% of that information will be discarded, preventing it from contributing to future care decisions for that patient.

Until we can access and aggregate data from the many disparate platforms being used in care settings, we can’t accurately inform machine learning models that will ultimately help care providers make better decisions. 

Our infographic, Harnessing Artificial Intelligence to Improve Critical Care, looks at how much data is being generated in critical care units, what’s being done with it — and what we can do to solve this data crisis.
