Clinical Rationale/Problem Solved
Aim 1: Wrong weight data entered into the EHR is very hard to detect and leads to potentially catastrophic dosing errors.
Aim 2: Weight data errors are amenable to machine learning, but it can be very time consuming to build the training sets needed to employ ML.
Aim 1: Prevents overdosing because of bad weight data.
Aim 2: Cutting edge use of ML, more robust detection capabilities.
