Internship project: Accuracy of machine learning for detecting deteriorating patients

Project Participants

Status: Ongoing


The project aims to compare the accuracy of clinical alerts detected via a machine learning algorithm with those recorded in a clinical information system.

Project Objective

  • Describe the characteristics of machine learning alerts being triggered by Electronic Medical Record data.
  • Characterise what triggered the machine learning alert using Electronic Medical Record data.
  • Evaluate the accuracy of a machine learning alert for recognising deteriorating patients.
  • Develop recommendations of how machine learning can be used to support clinical practice related to deteriorating patients.
