Death Vs. Data Science: Predicting End of Life

Death is an inevitable part of life and while it cannot be delayed indefinitely it
 is possible to predict with some certainty when the health of a person is going to deteriorate. In this paper, we predict risk of mortality for patients from two large hospital systems in the Pacific Northwest. Using medical claims and electronic medical records (EMR) data we greatly improve prediction for risk of mortality and explore machine learning models with explanations for end of life predictions.

A Framework to Recommend Interventions for 30-Day Heart Failure Readmission Risk.

In this paper, we describe a novel framework to recommend personalized intervention strategies to minimize 30-day readmission risk for heart failure (HF) patients, as they move through the provider’s cardiac care protocol. We design principled solutions by learning the structure and parameters of a multi- layer hierarchical Bayesian network from underlying high-dimensional patient data. Next, we generate and summarize the rules leading to personalized interventions which can be applied to individual patients as they progress from admit to discharge.
