Robot helps nurses schedule tasks on labor floor

  • July 13, 2016

A CRICO grant helped provide research support for a new system developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology to assist hospital staff in scheduling room assignments and suggesting which nurses to assign to patients for C-sections and other procedures.


“The aim of the work was to develop artificial intelligence that can learn from people about how the labor and delivery unit works, so that robots can better anticipate how to be helpful or when to stay out of the way — and maybe even help by collaborating in making challenging decisions,” says MIT professor Julie Shah, the senior author on the study, which took place at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
