*AUTOMATING PATIENT TRIAGE IN MAYO CLINIC'S MULTIDISCIPLINARY DIZZINESS PRACTICE*
Santiago Romero-Brufau, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of ENT and Healthcare Systems Engineering, Mayo Clinic, Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of Biostatistics, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
Unnecessary medical appointments are a source of dissatisfaction for both patients and medical providers and add waste to the healthcare system. Determining the medical appointments that are necessary for a medical condition (patient triage) can be a time-consuming and workload-intensive task. In this presentation, Dr. Romero-Brufau will describe how the problem of patient triage was partially automated using a clinical informatics approach, resulting in a 75% reduction in the triage workload. This also serves as a use case for how to implement AI solutions into the clinical workflow. He will discuss model selection, data acquisition and workflow integration.
