One of the major challenges ICU clinicians face is the ability to quickly comprehend and communicate the continuous changes in patient data minute by minute. Currently, such data must be manually aggregated from disparate sources such as:
- The EMR, which contains biased, often inaccurate, low-resolution data that is accessed through a challenging user interface;
- Numerous medical devices with varying interfaces and limited longitudinal viewing capabilities;
- Asynchronously reported data elements such as lab results, fluids, etc. with differing output formats and frequency.
