In the United States, the FDA has approved “the very first algorithm to monitor vital signs in patients in order to predict potentially fatal events a few hours before they occur”. Developed by the ExcelMedical Company, this form of “artificial intelligence” detects “subtle changes in vital signs and issues warnings up to six hours before a potentially fatal event occurs”. The system is also capable of interlinking vital signs. According to ExcelMedical, the system is 96% accurate. As far as the company is concerned, the algorithm accomplishes “an impossible task” for health care professionals, namely continuous patient monitoring.
