Use Health Management System’s (HMS) extensive data collections to create algorithms that can predict an individual’s risk of chronic disease.
This project will develop algorithms that can both measure and predict risk at an individual level.
These algorithms have enormous future value for improving health and wellness across the community. Not only does this research have the capacity to improve health outcomes across Australia, but it will also have the potential to reduce future healthcare costs. The focus of the algorithms will be on assisting with the prevention of the early onset of chronic disease.
Having the ability to accurately predict an individual’s risk of developing chronic disease will be highly valuable when it comes to targeting specific populations prone to certain illnesses. Findings sourced from this data also aim to assist governments with financial planning and allocation of resources.
