This NIHCM-funded study will apply state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to electronic health record data to develop predictive models that: (1) identify patients at high risk of becoming high users, and (2) predict which patients are likely to achieve better health outcomes and/or lower health care utilization in response to high-risk care management (HRCM). Results will contribute to more effective and efficient HRCM programs, helping to provide better care at lower cost.
