Health Matters: Dr Levi Bassin on a new patient monitoring system
In an Australian first, two doctors at Sydney Adventist Hospital have developed a smart, trend-based early warning score that can be integrated with a hospital electronic medical record to effectively predict patient deterioration. Dr Levi Bassin and Dr David Bell combined their background in cardiothoracic surgery with their respective degrees in computer science and mathematics when they became interested in developing an algorithm that could improve on the existing Early Warning Score system used in NSW public hospitals to detect patient deterioration.
Joining John Stanley is Dr Levi Bassin who shares more information on this new system.
