Monitoring Patient Activity Using AI Computer Vision: Grand Rounds at Duke

Given the importance of the overnight period in inpatient care, it remains challenging to get objective, quantitative data on whether or not a patient had a good night. And, to be provocative: how do we even define what is meant by a “good night?” While there is growing awareness that patients very often have sleepless […]

ATA 2023 – Integrating AI/Computer Vision Into Clinical Workflows

This work builds on our initial research in AI computer vision in the Duke medical intensive care unit. This research demonstrated several compelling data-driven readouts of patient activity and room environment, highlighting its potential utility in sleep, sedation, agitation, and delirium

Recap MLHC 2022: AI-Powered Video Summary of the Overnight Period
