This is achieved using an artificial intelligence model, based on a combination of current and previous observations about the patient.
Altegix is fully automated. It can handle many thousands of data points per hour and is flexible enough to be modified for client specific requirements.
Altegix improves the standard of patient care through early detection and intervention of potentially life threatening events.
The Altegix Application
Altegix combines a group of integrated apps to deliver the predictive outcome. It creates a risk score within minutes of the input data becoming available. For patients at risk, the responsible doctor receives a message (using their preferred device; pager or mobile phone) that the patient’s results are outside the agreed limits. The clinician then reviews the data, reviews the patient and can implement interventions for the patient as may be required.
Altegix has been validated with good predictive sensitivity and specificity over five years at two Melbourne hospitals. Specifically, the power of pathology information to predict the occurrence of MET calls, intensive care admissions and deaths demonstrates good clinical validity (based on statistical significance and validation through professional clinician opinion) across a cohort of 106,790 patients. Research findings concluded that Altegix has a predictive value ranging from fair to excellent, depending on its pathology inputs, in identifying patients at risk, on average, 10.2 hours before the event in ward patients and 11.9 hours in emergency patients.
