Sepsis Coordinator Network webinar – Informatics Basics
October 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Date: Tuesday, October 1
Time: 2PM EST/ 11AM PST
Artificial intelligence (AI) and other forms of Cognitive Computing are becoming more prevalant in healthcare, but many healthcare providers may not know how to use it in their practices. This webinar is intended to answer some basic questions surrounding AI. What is AI? What are the different types of AI and Cognitive Computing methods? What are the similarities/differences between the methods, and how are they similar/different from screening tools that we currently utilize (SIRS/qSOFA and other early warning scores)? How can we leverage the advances in AI technology to better identify patients at risk for sepsis?
