Geneia named a Best Place to Work in PA

Geneia discusses two predictive model innovations at PAW Healthcare conference

Geneia data scientists to present at Predictive Analytics World

May 24, 2021

Boston, MA – Geneia, a data science and healthcare analytics company that helps healthcare providers and health plans deliver personalized care, announces Sricharan Bandhakavi and Zhipeng Liu, two of the company’s principal data scientists, will present at the Predictive Analytics World Healthcare annual conference. The May 24-28, 2021 virtual event is part of Machine Learning Week.

In Liu’s May 25 12:50 PM ET session, Build more models faster: an automated machine-learning pipeline to predict the onset of major chronic diseases from healthcare claims data , he will discuss Geneia’s solution to the challenges of an often complex, time-consuming, error-prone process for building predictive models using healthcare claims data.

Geneia data scientists developed an automated pipeline to build machine-learning models with little or no manual intervention. Liu will review the pipeline’s conception, how it speeds model production by approximately 100 times while maintaining accuracy and interpretability, and an application: a series of models to predict major chronic disease onset.

Bandhakavi’s session, Population-level risk stratification of hypertensive patients by predictive modeling , is an on-demand presentation available throughout the conference week.

Using nationwide administrative claims data, Geneia data scientists developed a three-step approach to identify and risk-stratify hypertension member groups based on being ‘challenging to treat’ or ‘at risk for hypertension complications.’

In this presentation, Bandhakavi provides an in-depth review of this patent-pending predictive modeling approach and discusses how it supports risk stratification and management of hypertension members.

“Hypertension has become a major focus for the Geneia Data Intelligence Lab,” said Bandhakavi. “This often symptomless condition affects one in three American adults and contributes to devastating complications, including heart attack, stroke and end-stage renal disease.”
