Data Mining for Healthcare Applications
This research group uses MSI resources for several ongoing projects related to healthcare. In the first project, they use match run data to develop a predictive model for determining accept/decline decisions by candidates on organ transplant wait list. These models are used to estimate the impact of allocation policy changes on the effectiveness of transplant programs. The second project uses time stamp and health records data to develop a predictive model for hospital stays. This model will be used to develop a capacity management methodology for hospitals. The third project uses longitudinal data from integrated health systems to study impact of different service delivery paradigms on cost and quality of care.
