COVID-19 Triage Decision Support Tool
This triage decision support tool is intended to be used by healthcare professionals at the front lines to rapidly triage patients suspected of having COVID-19 infection. This tool was created in collaboration with international public health authorities and a follow up scientific publication has been submitted for peer review.
This mortality risk score was created using data from Surgisphere’s real time global research network comprised of more than 1,200 healthcare organizations. Data from over 10,000 patients with PCR-confirmed COVID-19 infection were evaluated.
Who Is Using This Tool?
This triage tool is currently being tested for clinical use. Please stay tuned for news on an upcoming major partnership with international public health authorities.
Accuracy and Validity
This triage tool correctly classifies 95.5% of patients with regard to urgency of care. Patients with critical symptoms who required immediate medical attention were correctly classified 100% of the time (PPV and NPV). Patients in the urgent vs. routine categories were correctly classified approximately 94% of the time.
This model has been prospectively validated. Additional details on this model will be made available shortly, along with a copy of the final manuscript once it is accepted for publication.
How Can I Contribute?
Surgisphere is dedicated to making the world a better place – for all people. Our research collaboration has helped improve the quality of care for kidney failure patients, improve outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease, and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and clinical testing for thousands of people. This effort requires participation of many good people – hospitals that want to use data to drive better outcomes, physicians who want to make more informed clinical decisions, insurance providers who want to make healthcare more accessible, and patients who want better outcomes.
If you are a physician, consider contributing to this effort by joining the research collaboration. There is no charge to participate.
If you represent a hospital, consider joining our global healthcare collaborative. You’ll get high quality dashboards and insight into clinical care that helps you deliver higher quality care for a more affordable cost. There is no charge for you to participate.
We are preparing a tool that helps predict outcomes for patients infected by COVID-19. What is the risk of serious illness? What is the chance of death? These are difficult questions to answer, but ones that we think we can solve using big data and machine learning. Consider funding this effort with a small donation.
THIS DECISION SUPPORT TOOL SHOULD NOT BE USED IN LIEU OF SOUND CLINICAL DECISION MAKING AND PROVEN TESTING METHODS. ALWAYS CONSULT WITH A LICENSED AND COMPETENT PHYSICIAN, PARTICULARLY AS IT RELATES TO THIS INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY.
