Predictive Analytics

One of the tasks that machine learning can be tuned for is trying to predict an outcome using a set of known information. For example, predictive models are often employed to predict the likelihood that someone who is being discharged from a hospital stay is going to come back within 30 days for the same problem.

For medicine, predictive analytics can have a substantial impact on all phases of healthcare, from the delivery of patient care at the bedside to optimizing staffing levels in the hospital.
