Translational outcome - software platform that improves hospital efficiency
Our researchers at PRaDA have created iHosp, a start-up company that aims to deliver efficiencies in hospitals using diverse data sets. It's currently installed by our industry partner, Barwon Health.
Our health analytics research has developed an artificial intelligence program that is allowing better resource utilisation and provides support where it’s needed most in identifying risk and adverse events.

A program that picks up suicide risk
PRaDA has developed a machine learning program that more accurately predicts mental health patients who are at risk of suicide.
Led by Dr Truyen Tran, the PRaDA team used hospital electronic records for patients with a mental illness, and created a program that is able to analyse large of chunks of data. From this data, the machine identified patterns that showed those most at risk. It is two times more accurate than previous
risk detection systems.
The program will provide a complete risk profile for each patient and enable practitioners to view the risk-relevant patient information more effectively. Barwon Health is now testing the program.
