Led to interventions for needs not
otherwise detected by clinical staff
- 50.4% reduction in acute respiratory compromise (ARC)

- 2628 ICU-days avoided
- $9.26 M in actual savings
A real time model that identifies if a patient is suspected of having high risk of sepsis, alerting care teams who can decide if additional interventions are need.
