UF Researchers Awarded $2.4M RO1 Grant From the NIH National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Dr. Parisa Rashidi, associate professor and J. Crayton Pruitt Term Fellow, and her team for recieved a $2.4 million RO1 grant from the NIH National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) for a collaborative project (Co-PI: Dr. Azra Bihorac) on “Intelligent Intensive Care Unit (I2CU): Pervasive Sensing and Artificial Intelligence for Augmented Clinical Decision-making.”

The proposed intelligent ICU (I2CU) concept is based on the long-term goal of sensing, quantifying, and communicating a patient’s condition in an autonomous, precise, and interpretable manner. The overall objective is to develop novel tools for sensing, quantifying, and communicating any patient’s condition in an autonomous, precise, and interpretable manner. The overall objective will be achieved by pursuing three specific aims. (1) Developing and validating an interpretable deep learning algorithm for precise and dynamic prediction of the patient’s clinical status to determine if it is more accurate in predicting daily care transition outcomes while providing interpretable information to the physician. (2) Developing a pervasive sensing system for autonomous visual assessment of critically ill patients to determine if it can provide an accurate visual assessment of a patient compared to human experts and if it can enrich acuity prediction when combined with clinical data. (3) Implementing and evaluating an intelligent platform for real-time integration of autonomous visual assessment and acuity prediction in the clinical workflow to determine accuracy in real-time prospective evaluation and determine physicians’ risk perception and satisfaction.
