General Healthcare Data Mining Model

We went into production on May 7 with our General Healthcare Data Mining Model. Our metrics comparison (without giving intellectual property away) is as follows:

Metric 1 - 5.15% (old) with new model 20.3%

Metric 2 - 6.06% (old) with new model 53.4%

Right now we are fine tuning the model, and reducing our findings to a writing since we must make sure that we have good documentation. We processed over 396 million claims in a 4.7 TB environment (SQL Server 2005). We can refresh every month right now and the goal is to refresh once a week in the next couple of months.

The model can be used in healthcare, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries.
