The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is the largest non-profit medical organization dedicated to promoting excellence and consistency in the practice of critical care. With members in more than 100 countries, SCCM is the only organization that represents all professional components of the critical care team. The Society offers a variety of activities that ensures excellence in patient care, education, research and advocacy.
Dr. Andrew Kramer will be describing his most recent work at the 2016 Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) conference entitled “Predictive Modeling in the ICU”. “It’s time we step to the next generation of predicting modeling within the ICU,” said Dr. Kramer. “For the past 30 years, ICU models have been developed using traditional statistical approaches. With the advent of Big Data and greater computing capacity, it is now possible to create sophisticated models based on machine learning. These models can be embedded in hospitals’ decision support systems.”
Stay tuned for updates on what promises to be an exciting session at SCCM in February 2016.
