Prognosis refers to the prediction of the future health status of a patient. Providing prognostic insight to clinicians is critical for physician decision support. In this paper we present a collaborative disease prognosis strategy leveraging the information of the clinically similar patient cohort, using a Local Spline Regression (LSR) based similarity measure. To improve the reliability of the approach, the algorithm can also incorporate physician's feedback in the form of whether the… CONTINUE READING
