A UK software company has developed a prototype algorithm that predicts sudden cardiac arrest. They seek further healthcare providers with datasets from critical care patients experiencing ventricular arrhythmias. The type of co-operation will be research and/or technical.
An East of England-based medical software company applies artificial intelligence to patient data to produce new early warning tools. They are seeking to develop an early-warning system for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) due to ventricular arrhythmias. The company is seeking hospitals or SMEs that have collected data from critical care patients experiencing ventricular arrhythmias. This will form a cooperative relationship.
Previous work resulted in the development of a prototype algorithm that predicts SCA. The purpose of this study is to collect additional data that will allow for improvement of the algorithmís performance. If sufficiently accurate, this algorithm could serve as the basis for an early warning system that could alert clinicians of impending ventricular arrhythmias and improve survival.
This study is part of an international study. Each study site that contributes data included in a study will have researchers serve as co-authors for that study, and will review and approve each manuscript prior to submission for publication. The UK company will take responsibility for the initial drafting of manuscripts for publications. At the conclusion of all sitesí data collection, they will prepare and submit a manuscript for publication describing algorithm performance based on all data collected from all sites. They will also make the software product available in all its potential forms for use to the collaborator for a number of years.
So the initial research co-operation may extend to a technical one as in joint testing and market launch.
- Type of partner sought: Cardiovascular datasets on critical care patients, including patients with ventricular arrhythmia.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Type of partner sought: hospitals, academia, industry.
Specific activity of partner sought: organisations with access to data from critical care patients.
Role of partner sought: a partner is sought to share the patient data. They are welcome to participate in research, to focus and improve the clinical value produced with the UK companyís AI algorithm.
