The future of medical care seemingly lies in our use of artificial intelligence. Though it may seem like an episode of Black Mirror, researchers believe that a new AI system might allow the US to slash the alarmingly high number of unexpected deaths.

The AI would be able to access past medical data such as CT scans.

Developed by Florida-based medical tech company Excel Medical, this new AI utilizes an algorithm that can accurately predict whether patients are at risk of sudden and unexpected death. Dubbed the WAVE Clinical Platform, the system takes advantage of integrated hospital workstations and digital medical records. This allows the AI to access real-time patient data that includes their physiology, family history, past medical history, age, medications, etc. By studying this data the AI can intelligently predict patient risk up to six hours in advance of when a doctor might notice any issues. If the AI notices anything suspicious, the AI will inform an on-call doctor via a companion smartphone app.

Though there are other AI platforms dedicated for medical use, the WAVE Clinical Platform is the first to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The decision was made after a series of studies by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center showed that the AI could indeed do what it promised.

Your doctor would be automatically notified of any issues via an app.

It’s an exciting time for medicine, and the use of AI means you might live a longer and healthier life. Hopefully, the WAVE Clinical Platform will come to a hospital near you.
