Predictive Modeling in health care is a process involving assessment & adjustment of risk & behavior, applied to a given population based upon available data for purposes of stratifying that population according to their future probabilities of incurring a given outcome or behavior. The purpose of Predictive Modeling is to risk stratify a population to identify individual opportunities for intervention or action before the projected outcome as occurred.
Predictive Modeling requires an existing data repository, in which data is mined, & selection of a specific modeling tool to apply to the historical timeframe to predict outcomes for an alternative timeframe. Traditional data sources may include individual demographics, pharmacy & medical claims data, lab values, health risk assessment data, & other clinical data.
The Predictive Modeling Web Summit provides a unique means to obtaining current trends, issues & solutions on key predictive modeling topics from leading national experts.
