Learning Patient Engagement in Care Management: Performance vs. Interpretability

  title={Learning Patient Engagement in Care Management: Performance vs. Interpretability},
  author={Subhro Das and Chandramouli Maduri and Ching-Hua Chen and Pei-Yun Sabrina Hsueh},
The health outcomes of high-need patients can be substantially influenced by the degree of patient engagement in their own care. The role of care managers includes that of enrolling patients into care programs and keeping them sufficiently engaged in the program, so that patients can attain various goals. The attainment of these goals is expected to improve the patients' health outcomes. In this paper, we present a real world data-driven method and the behavioral engagement scoring pipeline for…

Efficient goal attainment and engagement in a care manager system using unstructured notes

Unstructured CMNs can be used to improve accuracy of the classification models for predicting patient self-management goal attainment and help identify patients who may require special attention from CMs to improve engagement in self- management.



Effective Care for High-Need Patients : Opportunities for Improving Outcomes , Value , and Health Executive Summary

This publication reports and reflects on the key characteristics of high-need patients, promising care models and attributes to better serve this patient population, as well as insights on “matching” these models to specific patient groups, and areas of opportunity for policy-level action to support the spread and scale of evidence-based programs.

Measuring patient engagement: development and psychometric properties of the Patient Health Engagement (PHE) Scale

The Patient Health Engagement Scale (PHE-scale), a measure of patient engagement that is grounded in rigorous conceptualization and appropriate psychometric methods, shows a promising clinical relevance and can be used to tailor intervention and assess changes after patient engagement interventions.

Making Sense of Patient-Generated Health Data for Interpretable Patient-Centered Care: The Transition from "More" to "Better"

It is contended that making sense of PGHD systematically in such an interpretability-aware framework is preferrable, because it improves on the trustworthiness of PG HD-derived insights and the consequent applications such as person-centered comparative effectiveness in patient-centered care.

Development of the Patient Activation Measure (PAM): conceptualizing and measuring activation in patients and consumers.

The Patient Activation Measure is a valid, highly reliable, unidimensional, probabilistic Guttman-like scale that reflects a developmental model of activation that has good psychometric properties indicating that it can be used at the individual patient level to tailor intervention and assess changes.

Six features of Medicare coordinated care demonstration programs that cut hospital admissions of high-risk patients.

The results suggest that incorporating these approaches into medical homes, accountable care organizations, and other policy initiatives could reduce hospitalizations and improve patients' lives, however, the approaches would save money only if care coordination fees were modest and organizations found cost-effective ways to deliver the interventions.

A First Step Towards Behavioral Coaching for Managing Stress: A Case Study on Optimal Policy Estimation with Multi-stage Threshold Q-learning

This paper incorporates a multi-stage threshold selection into Q-learning to derive an interpretable form of a recommendation policy for behavioral coaching and applies this method on an observational dataset that contains Fitbit ActiGraph measurements and self-reported stress levels.

[A comprehensive management system for heart failure improves clinical outcomes and reduces medical resource utilization].

This study showed that a guideline-based management program for patients with heart failure at discharge improves quality of life and reduces readmission for DRG 127 and total bed days, allowing relevant cost savings.

RETAIN: An Interpretable Predictive Model for Healthcare using Reverse Time Attention Mechanism

The REverse Time AttentIoN model (RETAIN) is developed for application to Electronic Health Records (EHR) data and achieves high accuracy while remaining clinically interpretable and is based on a two-level neural attention model that detects influential past visits and significant clinical variables within those visits.

A framework for self-experimentation in personalized health

Implementation of the self-experimentation framework in a mobile application appears to be feasible for people with IBS and can likely be applied to other health conditions.

Interpretable Topic Features for Post-ICU Mortality Prediction

This work focused on post-discharge ICU mortality prediction and incorporated ICD-9-CM hierarchy into Bayesian topic model learning and extracted topic features from medical notes to emphasize the interpretability of topic features derived from topic model which may facilitates the understanding of the complexity between mortality and diseases.
