Machine Learning for Improved Patient Outcomes

Building/Room:  Building 240/Room 1404-1405 Location:  Argonne National Laboratory Machine learning has made a significant practical impact in a vast array of disciplines, ranging from healthcare to defense to finance. This presentation will be focused on healthcare and will describe how machine learning techniques may be applied to improve patient outcomes in three different clinical applications, including: the reduction of false cardiac arrhythmia alarms in the intensive care unit (ICU), the prediction of acute hypotensive episodes in the ICU, and the automated classification of heart sounds using phonocardiography. Each of these research topics presents its own unique challenges that influence the selection of optimal machine learning algorithms. Machine learning techniques have been shown to enhance patient outcomes in not only these three applications, but also in a wide variety of additional…
