With the help of DataRobot’s powerful machine learning platform, hospitals can build predictive models that help decision-makers implement more targeted national health policies.
This was the case with a recent study on diseases in Romania. Using a dataset of all hospitalized patients in Romania between 2008 and 2018 (ICD-10, International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision), we were able to perform highly accurate automated time series (AutoTS) predictions for the ten deadliest diseases.
To our knowledge, this is the first study to perform time series forecasting of multiple diseases at a regional level, using automated time series machine learning on a national ICD-10 dataset. This exploration highlights the fact that the deployment of AutoTS technology can help decision-makers determine key national health policies.
