Post-surgery complications are a huge risk for both healthcare professionals and patients worldwide, a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform can now alleviate these worries. MySurgeryRisk extracts clinical data in real-time and analyses and provides valuable results to the surgeons’ mobile devices. A study by Jama Network Open has published these findings. Over 74,417 inpatient surgical procedures involving 58,236 adult patients were analyzed. MySurgeryRisk is powered by machine learning and has been developed using seven years of data. The accuracy of the surgeons was consistently matched by the system, and it predicted the surgical outcomes.

The system was consistently able to match the surgeons’ accuracy in predicting the surgical outcomes, and this can benefit both doctors and patients by augmenting medical decision-making and reducing complications. The machine also collected data such as vital signs during the surgical procedures and produced fast, accurate predictions of prolonged intensive care unit stays and mortality risk after procedures. The researchers also claimed that the AI calculated the risk of eight major postoperative complications, including sepsis, acute kidney injury, and cardiovascular and neurologic issues. The University of Florida Health said that the system is also unique and valuable in the way it collects data and distributes real-time information to physicians.
