Professors Dafna Sussman & Rasha Kashef of Ryerson University are teaming up with Mount Sinai Hospital to tackle the very difficult problem of achieving successful early intervention for pregnant women diagnosed with COVID-19.

The project aims to support medical professionals who are directly treating COVID-19 pregnancies. A comprehensive, anonymized data repository will be deployed in conjunction with dedicated prediction algorithms to score patients for their risk of severe deterioration. The repository together with the algorithm are expected to radically transform Canadian and, potentially, international healthcare providers’ ability to identify, manage and treat cases of COVID-19 in pregnant patients.
