Predicting Hospital Readmissions with Machine Learning

Predicting Hospital Readmissions with Machine Learning

Governments in the US and around the world have introduced a variety of financial penalties to hospitals with excess early readmissions. But how can hospitals predict which patients are likely to be readmitted early, so they can help these patients avoid readmittance? In this post, we explore some machine learning methods for predicting early readmissions.
