With the goal of developing an advanced algorithm to detect pediatric weight errors, we developed a visual annotation tool (VAT) to support the rapid collection of expert-annotated errors. This abstract reports the preliminary evaluation results of VAT in terms of efficiency, accuracy, and usability. Future work involves completing the formal evaluation, use VAT to build a large annotation dataset for algorithm training, and develop a decision support tool to capture weight errors and improve patient safety.

Learning Objective: Evaluate the effectiveness of a visual annotation tool for weight-entry error detection in pediatric weight charts
