Dr. Kennedy's primary research focus is on predictive modeling of cardiac arrest in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Through application of predictive modeling and data mining algorithms on physiologic and laboratory data trends, he is pursuing the creation of a clinically useful predictive model of cardiac arrest that will provide caregivers with advanced warning of impending arrests, thereby allowing for preventative measures that will abort the arrest or minimize its impact on the patient. His secondary research focus is on providing bedside decision support to clinicians by leveraging information in hospital information to automatically calculate derived measures that are used in making clinical decisions. Many of the decisions clinicians make in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit are based on data elements that must be calculated from multiple pieces of raw data in order to determine their value. By providing automated calculations, he hopes to improve the accuracy and consistency of data used in caring for PICU patients.
