Korean startup AITRICS aims to provide predictive, preventive and personalized healthcare utilizing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The digital healthcare startup has developed an AI-based predictive solution that can help detect health problems at a much earlier stage than at the onset of signs or symptoms. The predictive analysis service by AITRICS is likely to be a helpful device considering the aging population and spiraling health issues worldwide.
Preventing Health Emergencies using AI
AITRICS’ VitalCare is the first AI-driven patient risk prediction system that collects patient data such as vital signs and lab tests directly from electronic medical records (EMR). It generates prediction scores for clinical deterioration and sepsis 4 to 24 hours in advance. The product aims to deliver an integrated healthcare interaction system by providing real-time predictive analytics solutions to aid physicians in the early detection of subtle signs of patient deterioration. VitalCare was created through a joint venture with DAMC in 2019. The venture combined AITRICS’ unique AI system with DAMC’s vast experience in the medical field to develop cutting-edge AI technology that will provide next-generation medical services.
The VitalCare system improves patient safety, helps doctors save more lives, and effectively reduces medical costs by identifying patients with a high risk of clinical deterioration. It also identifies the contributing clinical factors through analyzing data from different sources. The product was designed to be implemented in the ICU, emergency unit, and general wards to prevent failure to rescue (FTR) and optimize the healthcare institution’s patient admissions and discharge processes, thereby improving its efficiency while reducing costs. Through the Vital Care system’s predictive analytical solutions, healthcare professionals can make the right medical decision and administer the appropriate healthcare services to high-risk patients.
