This data-driven approach to diagnosis will overcome many of the limitations of current expert opinion-based triage guidelines. Smart technology has the potential to overcome the barrier of limited clinical expertise in the identification of the child at risk. This mobile health platform, with sensors and data-driven applications, will provide real-time individualised risk prediction to facilitate timely and effective targeted treatment at first contact, regardless of location. This low-cost technology will provide rapid triage in remote ar...
