Cognitive Computing Strategy to Reduce Inpatient Falls

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

We intend to address the problem of inpatient falls and reduce the incidence of these events through a coordinated interprofessional approach that leverages the EMR and lessons learned from past NM system-wide fall initiatives. We propose that the incidence of inpatient falls at NM can be reduced through a comprehensive EMR-based automated program that predicts highest fall risk and directs customized interventions towards the patients at highest risk for these events.
