To assist with the medical management of patients presenting to the emergency department with potential acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the RAPIDx AI project will integrate clinical care with validated real-time data and modern analytical methods to better support clinical decision-making and help establish the South Australian health system as an effective learning health system. The RAPIDx AI project will deploy an AI-based diagnostic algorithm for patients with potential Type I or Type II myocardial infarction (MI) and myocardial injury within the emergency departments (EDs) of six South Australian hospitals, and will provide protocolised recommendations for medical management of these patients. The RAPIDx AI project is administered by Flinders University, South Australia. The HeartAI system provides the digital platform to enable real-time data and analytical methods. In a supporting partnership with the RAPIDx AI project, Siemens will deploy the RAPIDx AI Clinical Interface Prototype to provide a robust interface at the clinical point-of-care. Modern analytical capabilities are developed in partnership with the Australian Institute for Machine Learning, University of Adelaide, South Australia.

The RAPIDx AI project has recently been successful with a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Partnership Projects grant with partnership between:

  • Siemens Healthineers
  • SA Health Department of Health and Wellbeing
  • Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Health (CEIH)
  • Southern Adelaide Local Health Network
  • Central Adelaide Local Health Network
  • Northern Adelaide Local Health Network
  • Integrated Cardiology Clinical Network (ICCNet)
  • Health Translation SA (HTSA)
