Suppose that we need to classify a population of subjects into several well-defined ordered risk categories for disease prevention or management with their "baseline" risk factors/markers. In this article, we present a systematic approach to identify subjects using their conventional risk factors/markers who would benefit from a new set of risk markers for more accurate classification. Specifically for each subgroup of individuals with the same conventional risk estimate, we present inference… CONTINUE READING
