Odyssey, the key technology tool for Triage Decision Support will be demonstrated in the Seminar.
Odyssey provides triage decision support underpinned by Bayesian logic for emergency care. This logic allows all relevant information to be examined simultaneously via a framework rather than through a restrictive algorithmic pathway. Multiple symptoms can be analysed simultaneously to give a final overall outcome, ensuring patient focus and risk management within a short timeframe. The Bayesian approach ensures potentially life threatening or serious conditions are quickly identified and dealt with appropriately.
For less serious conditions, patients can have self-care safely recommended to them, with advice communicated in a way they can easily understand. The ability to supply the user with clear, unambiguous recommendations relevant to age, gender and symptoms is a key element of this system. Patients can also use its online symptom checker which can be accessed via the web or on their smart phones.
