Six Sigma Opiate Pilot Project: Develop a Predicative Risk Model

Text Description is below the image.

A circle contains the text "63,033 total patients exposed to narcotics," and a smaller circle within reads "(322 narcotic ADEs SI > = 3)". The circle flows into a screenshot of a Web page for reporting ADEs.


Predictive Model: Used recursive partitioning of 63K narcotic exposed patients to uncover "high-risk" (statistically significant) subgroups of pts at higher risk for Opiate ADE; dataset included periop risk factors, opiates, and other interacting medications (SSRIs, benzos, sedatives, etc.).
