Project AI-ED

The aim of this project is to enable older people to remain independent, functioning, and diminish disability and deterioration with the right care at the right time in the right place – which may not be the Emergency Department (ED).  This will be achieved by using artificial intelligence to develop an algorithm that identifies older people at risk of potentially preventable ED presentations who can be safely and well-cared for in the community.  The result will inform early intervention approaches that empower and integrate community and primary care.  The project is a partnership across the SPHERE network and beyond including Western Sydney University, UNSW, SWSLHD, SESLHD, SWSPHN, HammondCare, Carers NSW, and NSW Ambulance, and importantly, lived experience experts including consumers and carers.
