Northern Care Alliance FT: Chronic Subdural Hematoma Referral Prediction Neural Network

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) incidence and referral rates are rapidly increasing. Many referrals are inappropriate and utilise significant clinical time for both the referring doctor as well as the neurosurgical team. Furthermore, acceptance of a CSDH referral is a subjective clinical decision influenced by several baseline prognostic variables. Accurate and automated evidence-based referral decision support tools are therefore required to prevent unnecessary referrals and unwarranted interventions. The network aimed to create reliable machine learning algorithms capable of safely predicting the acceptance of a CSDH referral.

The judges said evidence of impact has already been shared both at local, national and international level and we are pleased to share it further.
