This paper describes a pilot study aimed at quantifying the accuracy of AI enabled cough monitoring. We have established a rigorous methodology for evaluating and reporting results and claims to its performance, making us confident that the current version of Hyfe Cough Monitoring System will achieve clinically meaning
Cough is an information-rich and readily monitored syndrome that will pioneer ’smart risk profiling’ systems, prove their value in alleviating the global burden of respiratory disease, and usher in a new era of proactive mobile health.
