CLEW Medical leverages AI to predict patient complications


An Israeli startup is working to integrate artificial intelligence and predictive analytics into the clinical workflow.

Founded about three and a half years ago, CLEW Medical provides a platform that functions as a standalone tool or that can be integrated into an existing solution.

“The goal is really not to change the existing workflow in a hospital,” Izik Itzhakov, CLEW’s vice president of business development, said in a phone interview. Instead, it’s to “take what already exists and provide insights,” with the ultimate aim of improving patient care.

More specifically, the startup’s platform utilizes a hospital’s existing data to give clinicians information they can use to manage ICU and tele-ICU patients.

The solution is “trying to identify physiological deterioration before you can see any physiological changes on the patients themselves,” Itzhakov said.
