Like so many healthcare organizations, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has massive amounts of data from its clinical care, education and research efforts, and the volume keeps growing. Putting all that data to good use, especially to improve care and patient outcomes, is a top priority for the Boston-based, 650-bed hospital, which treats hundreds of thousands of inpatients and outpatients each year.

This fall, the medical center, which is a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, will begin pushing live feeds of data into a custom application that caregivers can use to analyze risk levels in the intensive care unit (ICU) at any given time. Ultimately, the application will help Beth Israel Deaconess predict which patients are at risk of developing dangerous complications like infections, blood clots, or bleeds.
