CASE STUDIES AND PUBLICATIONS
See how AHI is proven to help better manage clinical care.
CASE STUDY: BOUNCEBACK
With AHI, there was a potential opportunity to recognize the gradual patient deterioration well in advance, thereby avoiding failure to rescue, transfer to lower level of care, and eventual bounceback.
CASE STUDY: ICU READMISSION
Through retrospective review, if AHI outputs had been available and heeded, the patient would not have been transferred to a lower level of care, and therefore would not have required a readmission to the ICU in less than 24 hours.
CASE STUDY: SEPSIS
Through retrospective review, AHI provided clear and continuing real-time warnings of patient deterioration immediately in response to a medication change.
CASE STUDY: SEPTIC SHOCK
AHI provided early and continuing real-time warnings of patient deterioration, possibly enabling a timelier titration of needed medications that could have improved the clinical outcome.
CASE STUDY: UNDETECTED HEMORRHAGE
Through retrospective review, 37 hours before RRT call and second surgery, AHI provided consistent, low-noise affirmation that patient was hemodynamically unstable (red) until post- surgery on day 3, when patient was hemodynamically stabilized and recovering.

Thought this was really easy. User friendly. Normally we have in-services; I feel like if you missed that you'd be just fine.
Nurses don’t have time to update patients' vitals and assessments every two minutes. This gives us a way to see that a patient is stable on a regular basis with easy access.
This tool can help determine where patients go [in the hospital] and how we should treat them, potentially changing admission flow, freeing up capacity and reducing length of stays.
We have a couple of teams dabbling in "early warning" models, but they have not distilled it down to a single ECG lead!

It would help me assign patients to nurses, knowing where the “hot-spots” are, and guide me to maintain an equal workflow with my nurses.
Critical Care/Charge RN
Just install it and they would start to use it.
