The theme of the Health Outcomes Research and Clinical Epidemiology Section is that of medical decision making. We strive to conduct analyses that impact how physicians should make decisions with individual patients. Typically these analyses take the form of prediction model development and validation, health-related quality of life assessment instrument development and validation, and cost effectiveness analysis. We feel these are the approaches best suited for the promotion of personalized medicine and comparative effectiveness.
We recently hosted an international symposium on measuring the accuracy of prediction models. Copies of the talks may be found here.
We have also devised a system that allows statisticians to easily deploy their prediction models over the web by creating a form and pasting in the prediction equation! Try it for yourself here. A list of the models we have built can be found here. These models can be executed on desktop and handheld (e.g., BlackBerry) browsers.
