Next Generation Cardiology for the Intensivist
A Bioengineering Research Seminar
Personalised Medicine is expected to improve efficiency of healthcare delivery and reduce costs, however this has not been fully realized in New Zealand. We are unique, with high quality electronic medical records, universal tracking patient identifiers and central healthcare databases. With a single payer, overburdened socialised healthcare system and constrained resources we are well positioned to maximize the utility of personalised medicine. Recent advances in machine learning, big data and the availability of fast computational resources have enabled rapid evolution in the field. This includes the use of artificial intelligence (AI) applied to triaging, diagnosis and prognostication. Nearly ubiquitous portable diagnostic devices such as point of care blood analysers, bedside ultrasound and ECG have evolved dramatically in recent times and are due for an AI upgrade.
This presentation covers the clinical implementation of machine learning to clinical records, machine vision, and multi-omics, and will be delivered as an simple to understand primer. Intensivists will also be given elementary directions on how to use this technology for themselves.
