Patient-Level Prediction Workgroup


The overall objective of this workgroup (WG) is to establish a standardized process for developing accurate and well-calibrated patient-centered predictive models that can be utilized for multiple outcomes of interest and can be applied to observational healthcare data from any patient subpopulation of interest.

Effective exploitation of the massive dataset available in the OMOP CDM demands novel methodology and an interdisciplinary approaches to deal with the by nature sparse and irregular-spaced longitudinal EHR data. Dimensionality reduction methods will be assessed and developed to deal with the massive amount of data. Furthermore, the WG will develop methods to leverage temporal information and will study how to incorporate expert knowledge, e.g. automatically extracted prior knowledge from LAERTES, to improve the performance of the prediction models.

The WG aims to develop the open source Person-Level Assessment of Treatment Outcomes (PLATO) tool integrated in the OHDSI framework. This would allow all OHDSI members to produce individualized risk for all medical interventions and all health outcomes of interest, based on personal demographics, medical history, and health behaviors.

Starting 2020, the Patient-Level Predictions meetings will be combined with the Population-Level Effect Estimation meetings. The team still has its own research agenda.
