Predicting Discharge Dates From the NICU Using Progress Note Data

Reports a machine-learning algorithm for predicting discharge from text in daily NICU progress notes. The authors postulate that knowing when a patient is medically ready to go home may make it easier to plan for non-medical needs. This research contrasts with studies that focus on explicitly predicting when a patient is medically ready to go home. In either case, it is important to know when a patient is ready, especially with long stays like one sees in NICUs.
