Exploring the potential for using predictive modelling in identifying end of life care needs - 15 February 2013 - National End of Life Care Programme / Whole Systems Partnership
This report, produced in partnership with Whole Systems Partnership, is based on a project which reviewed the literature on predictive modelling, canvassed views and engaged with interested parties to formulate an initial response to the opportunities presented by predictive modelling approaches in identifying people likely to be nearing the end of life.
Predictive modelling involves the interrogation of datasets to inform professional judgement about potential needs. It is hoped that the findings of this report will be used to enable commissioners and providers of services to better understand and meet people's end of life care preferences and wishes, supporting more people to live and die well in their preferred place.
