From Specialty Pharmacy Times:
A novel formula can predict 1 out of 3 emergency department (ED) visits, allowing physicians to take action before a patient with cancer requires admittance.
Physicians and data miners from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania are working to harness big data with a specific focus on patients with lung cancer.
Investigators hope to develop a formula that predicts when a patient is likely to end up in the ED by flagging recent lab tests, radiology visits, or patient-reported symptoms.
