Predictive Analytics

Big Data in Healthcare

In this research we utilise a variety of big data sources for predictive modelling in a healthcare setting. Our research aims to:

  • Develop a framework for classifying patients.
  • Develop predictive models to identify high-risk patients.
  • Develop predictive models for describing patient pathways through the healthcare system.
  • Research methods of producing information to help healthcare managers control costs.

Smart Medication Reconciliation

Smart Medication Reconciliation

Automating for accuracy Patients’ regular medicines are often inaccurately prescribed when they transfer from hospital to home; a major source of medication errors and iatrogenic harm. Medicines reconciliation (MedRec) is an evidence-based process where clinicians manually compare a patient’s regular ...
