Algorithms for identification of deteriorating patients from electronic health records (EHRs) fuse vital sign data, which can be measured at the bedside, with additional physiological data from the EHR. It has been observed that these algorithms provide improved performance over traditional early warning scores (EWSs), which are restricted to the use of vital signs alone. This case study demonstrates the development of an algorithm which uses logistic regression to fuse vital signs with additional physiological parameters commonly found in an EHR to predict deterioration.
