Well done to Broderick McCallum-Hee, Keaton Wright, Riley Croxford on all your hard work and for delivering a fantastic healthcare solution! UWA Medical Physics won the Hackathon for the second year in a row. They took home $10,000 in Amazon Web Services (AWS) credits and $5000 cash, thanks to idoba. Hackules tackled ‘Early Detection of Sepsis’ and came up with a data-driven model that can identify patients at risk of developing sepsis. Using emergency department/hospital data and triage notes they were able to detect potential sepsis cases quickly so clinicians can make informed decisions fo ..read more
