Sanjaya Gupta, M.D., electrophysiologist, St. Luke's Mid America Heart Institute, and assistant professor, University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Medicine, explains how his center developed an artificial intelligence (AI) application to automatically risk stratify atrial fibrillation (AFib) patients. The Epic-based app stratifies patients into those who should be placed on anticoagulation and those who are candidates for left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion. He spoke at the 2019 AI-Med Cardiology conference.
His center hopes to develop similar guidelines based AI apps for other types of cardiac risk scoring. Gupta said he is looking for other centers to partner with to co-develop and test these AI apps.
