Duke Health uses AI to reduce sepsis in hospitals

Durham, N.C.-based Duke Health developed an artificial intelligence system for early detection of sepsis, according to a July 3 press release.

The learning model was imputed into more than 50,000 patient records and more than 32 million data points. Duke Health was able to identify patients at risk for developing sepsis with more than 90 percent accuracy.

Duke Health has licensed its AI system with Cohere Med, a clinical analytics company. Cohere Med will enhance the AI system with real-time processing of events to improve clinical data and interoperability.
