FDA Approves Artificial Intelligence That Can Predict Death

Who:  Excel Medical, a medical tech company.

What:  WAVE clinical platform is the first Artificial Intelligence (AI) of its kind to be cleared by The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Its algorithms can accurately predict whether medical patients could be at risk of a sudden, unexpected death.

Where:  Excel Medical is in Florida. But hospitals need to be fitted with special workstations.

When:  Stanford University proved in a recent study using similar technology, deep learning algorithms, were able to correctly predict an otherwise-unexpected death in 90 percent of cases.

Why:  “Everything we do as an organization aligns toward and supports the goal of eradicating unexpected deaths in hospitals,” Lance Burton, General Manager of Excel Medical

How Does It Work:
An integrated system of hospital workstations and digital medical records that includes real-time data on their physiology, past medical history, family history, medications, age, etc. With all this information, the AI can pick up on subtle changes in vitals and send alerts up to six hours before a potentially lethal event could occur.
