Speaker Sessions

11. How to Turn Predictive Models Into Actions That Achieve Results

Level: Intermediate
Track: Innovative Analytics/Artificial Intelligence (AI)

A good predictive model alone won’t yield real-world outcomes. To achieve results, organizations must pair predictive models with effective interventions and delivery tools. In this session, representatives from Texas Children’s Hospital, the largest pediatric hospital in the U.S., will describe a framework for effective predictive model implementation in clinical practice, featuring the organization’s custom Pediatric Readmissions model. By accurately flagging 20 percent of patients as potential readmissions, Texas Children’s was able to apply early interventions and reduce potential readmissions by 5 percent.

Participants will learn:

  • The value predictive models add to clinical decision making.
  • The tools and interventions needed to maximize predictive models.
  • How to effectively implement predictive models in clinical practice.
