- •Patients frequently present to the emergency department with elevated SCr.
- •Computer algorithms can identify AKI with high sensitivity and specificity.
- •AKI algorithm performance varies according to time period allowed for baseline SCr.
- •Using a longer time period for assessment of baseline SCr yields better results.
- •The best algorithms are useful for diagnosis of AKI in the emergency department.
