Abstract

We present a mining system that can predict the future health status of the patient using the temporal trajectories of health status of a set of similar patients. The main novelties of this system are its use of stream processing technology for handling the incoming physiological time series data and incorporating domain knowledge in learning the similarity metric between patients represented by their temporal data. The proposed approach and system were tested using the MIMIC II database, which consists of physiological waveforms, and accompanying clinical data obtained for ICU patients. The study was carried out on 1500 patients from this database. In the experiments we report the efficiency and throughput of the stream processing unit for feature extraction, the effectiveness of the supervised similarity measure both in the context of classification and retrieval tasks compared to unsupervised approaches, and the accuracy of the temporal projections of the patient data. © 2010 IEEE.
