Ontonix, SAIC and the MMI Develop Android App for Patient Monitoring

Como, September 30-th, 2019. Ontonix, SAIC and the Military Medicine Institute in Warsaw have developed an Android-based App for real-time monitoring or patients in Intensive Care. The App processes streaming data originating in monitoring equipment in Intensive Care Units and delivers early-warnings of imminent crises or instabilities. Such early warnings are based on sudden variations of patient complexity and, generally, precede crises or instabilities.

“While most conventional patient monitoring systems analyze vital signs on a one-by-one basis, our tool identifies and takes into account all possible channel interactions, combining them into one single systemic indicator of the patient’s state and dynamics”, said Dr. J. Marczyk, the founder of Ontonix. “We are grateful to our partners, the Warsaw-based Military Medicine Institute and with SAIC, for their collaboration in helping us deploy such an innovative and advanced tool” he added.

“Because of the immense complexity of the human body, and due to the limitations of conventional mathematics, medicine lacks a systems perspective. Today, thanks to our Quantitative Complexity Science and Technology, it is possible to see a patient as a system of interacting systems and to provide real-time measures of his complexity and stability. This new approach provides unprecedented insight into the dynamics of a patient and enables us to issue early-warnings in an ICU” he concluded.

Below, images of the App in a stable condition (left) and in case of early-warning (right). The vital signs at the top of the bar chart indicate which ones are responsible for the crisis or instability.

Visionary, scientist, businessman and writer with over 35 years of experience in QUANTITATIVE large-scale Uncertainty and Complexity Management in diverse fields (manufacturing, finance, economics).

Author of nine books on simulation, uncertainty and complexity management, rating.

Developed in mid 90s the theory of eigenvalue orbits, a generalization of the concept of eigenvalue.

In 2000-2005 has developed the first Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT), including a comprehensive measure of complexity.

Founded Ontonix Complexity Management in 2005 in the USA and launched in 2006 the first commercial system for MEASURING and managing complexity: OntoSpace.

In 2007 launched first on-line Resilience Rating for businesses, an objective and transparent rating system:


In 2009 delivered real-time technology to measure the complexity and stability of patients during operation or permanence in Intensive Care Units.


Developed a new theory of risk and rating published in 2009 in a book entitled "A New Theory of Risk and Rating".

Over last decade develops quantitative complexity management (QCM) technology and solutions for applications in economics, finance, Risk Rating and Management as well as in Asset Management and medicine. In the past five years works towards the democratization of ratings.

In 2013 he founded London-based Assetdyne, focusing on design of complexity-based high-performance portfolios and complexity-based asset allocation and asset management.


He is currently focusing on creating a new Rating Agency and a fund which will be managed via complexity technology (QCT).
