Researchers from Maywood, Ill.-based Loyola Medicine and Loyola University Chicago used an artificial intelligence technique to identify alcohol misuse among trauma patients. The technique was able to differentiate between trauma patients who misused alcohol and those who did not in 78 percent of cases. Researchers published their findings in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association. One in three trauma patients misuse alcohol, and many trauma cases are alcohol-related, according to the study. These records included 91,405 EHR clinician notes.
