Computer Science Professor Named Researcher to Watch in 2013
Computer science professor Ramamohan Paturi was named one of six researchers to watch in 2013 by the La Jolla Light.
Paturi's research "includes complexity theory, digital libraries, medical data mining and evidence-based medicine. He is also founder and chairman of San Diego-based Parity Computing, which recently launched Clinical Vigilance for Sepsis, a software system for healthcare providers caring for patients at potential risk of deadly sepsis which strikes more than 750,000 American each year," according to the publication.
"Currently, early detection of sepsis is complex and costly, requiring a high level of expert caregiver attention. Clinical Vigilance for Sepsis integrates with current clinical workflow to assess patient data already being collected as part of standard care. The software automatically and continuously monitors all patients in a hospital setting, issuing alerts that bring immediate attention to at-risk patients."
