A recent article in Wired Magazine discusses Etiometry and the importance of developing impactful analytics to improve the quality of care in the ICU. It reached the following logical conclusion: “If we are able to develop systems that enhance their [physicians] capabilities and allow them to provide their patients better care, we will be in a win-win situation for healthcare professionals, patients and taxpayers.”
Etiometry CTO Dimitar Baronov's recent
blog shares his feedback on the article and on the emerging role of artificial intelligence (AI) in the ICU to address data utilization challenges. Among his comments he writes,
"If you accept that AI strives to automatically aggregate, correlate, and contextualize data from multiple sources to help humans make better decisions faster, then you can see the potential value of AI in the ICU."
