Predicting COVID-19 Reemergence Among Previously Recovered Cases

Predicting COVID-19 Reemergence Among Previously Recovered Cases

Policy makers and businesses across the globe are struggling to determine when and how to return to normalcy, balancing health safety with economic pressures and needs. And while most are focusing on susceptibility, case count, deaths and recovery rates one critical piece of information is noticeably missing from the equation – re-emergence. Can individuals get re-infected? Does the virus remain dormant? Can they once again become infectious? A 16% relapse rate suggests we should be considering it.

Identification of elders at higher risk for fall with statewide electronic health records and a machine learning algorithm

Identification of elders at higher risk for fall with statewide electronic health records and a machine learning algorithm

Falls in our elder population are a major cause of injury, hospitalization and mortality worldwide, and a major source of medical costs. Current risk screening and assessment methods are often manual, include a limited number of intrinsic factors, exclude environmental factors and/or lack discriminatory capabilities that a robust machine-learned model can provide. See how machine learning can provide better discrimination for intervention and prevention.

Development of an early-warning system for high-risk patients for suicide attempt using deep learning and electronic health records

Development of an early-warning system for high-risk patients for suicide attempt using deep learning and electronic health records

Suicide is a leading cause of death in the US, particularly for young people, veterans and Native Americans. An early warning system can be an effective way to identify those in need before a crisis is upon them. See how AI and machine learning on longitudinal health records can be used to identify those at risk – up to 60+ times as likely to attempt a suicide in a future 1 year period.

Sepsis Awareness Month: Shocking Levels of Community Acquired Sepsis

Sepsis Awareness Month: Shocking Levels of Community Acquired Sepsis

In the hospital setting, I knew that sepsis accounted for 1 in 3 deaths, increased lengths of stay and increased costs. But I was unaware how many patients were admitted with sepsis already brewing. According to research in Critical Care Medicine, in the United States, over 970,000 sepsis cases are admitted annually, and the numbers have been rising year over year. That’s about 3% of all admission and 60% of the 1.7 million cases reported by the CDC. The Sepsis Alliance reports as many as 87% of sepsis cases originate in the community!

An Academic Approach – What’s That Mean?

We study what is already in the published domain for insights on risk models & modeling methods, as well as clinical challenges to learn from other authors. Then, we contribute to the body of knowledge by publishing our methods and results so that others can learn, too.
