AI models identify COVID-19 patients at the greatest risk of death, injury

AI models can help reduce the burden and cost of healthcare.

New artificial intelligence (AI) models can help doctors prioritize care by predicting which COVID-19 patients are most at risk of dying or developing kidney injuries during hospitalization.

The sophisticated computer software, developed by researchers at the University of Waterloo, identifies vulnerable patients by learning from previous COVID-19 patient cases with known clinical outcomes.
