Financial Evaluation of EDDI (Early Detection Decision Information)

Summer of Research project by James Zhang, University of Auckland, supervised by Dr Michael O’Sullivan Jnr (University of Auckland).

New software could flag issues early during operations, helping surgeons and anaesthetists intervene before serious complications arise. We need to find out how much of a difference this software makes, and whether it will prevent complications and save money.

EDDI (Early Detection Decision Information) software can be connected to monitoring devices in surgical theatres to analyse patient conditions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing patterns. It also detects medication errors, such as incorrect medication, overdosing or under-dosing.

The software automatically alerts surgical staff if a patient is deteriorating. If they can detect deterioration early, they can hopefully intervene to prevent complications.
