The system can operate on existing clinical workstations at the bedside, and provides daily individual patient risk predictions for mortality risk, length of stay, risk of active treatment, probability of Swan Ganz catheter usage, days on ventilators, resource utilization, and it predicts stability for transfer out of the ICU over a 48-hour period. The system trends a patient's response to therapy over time. It also identifies patients appropriate for transfer to a lower level of care; identifies potentially inappropriate admissions; offers predictions of resource utilization, probability of active treatment, and stability for transfer out of the ICU; provides objective information to clinicians evaluating futility of care; displays severity mix of patients to assist in determining necessary staffing resources; and identifies and reports changes in patient's daily physiology.
