About Us PRISMAp is a collaborative research partnership for the design, development, and implementation of Intelligent Healthcare Systems.

Bringing together experts in Medicine, Health Policy Research, and Computer Engineering, our partnership combines modern approaches to modeling, signal processing, and machine learning in order to develop and refine data analysis methods. The predictive models, physiologic markers, and clinical reasonings generated by PRISMAp will serve to improve patient care in perioperative environments.
