High frequency distributed data stream event correlation to improve neonatal clinical management
Approximately eighteen percent (18%) of babies born in New South Wales (NSW), Australia require special care or neonatal intensive care admission. Premature babies can be up to 17 weeks early and may only weigh 450gms; they can spend 3 or 4 months in intensive care and have dozens of specific diseases before discharge, many of these may have long term implications for the future health of the individual.

Similar conditions apply within Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and elsewhere where small non-tertiary units are spread throughout the country. This paper presents case study based applied research in progress supporting the development of a distributed event stream processing framework to enable high frequency...
