Algorithms support intensive care physicians

Dear Sir or Madam,

In intensive care units, a diagnosis must be made as quickly as possible so that treatment can be given promptly. Algorithms can provide diagnostic aids because they recognize certain disease patterns based on patient data. The ELISE project researches the extent to which intensive care physicians benefit from such a decision support and whether such systems can already be adopted in regular operation. Learn more in our current Interview.
