In this module, we'll be looking at experience oriented predictions and some of the different methods and techniques we can bring to bear when building them. We'll examine making predictions for individual patient outcomes, for example: how likely they are to have preventable complications, non-compliance with medication regimens or how likely they are to be satisfied with their provider. We'll take a deeper dive into the CAHPS survey, a common method for evaluating consumer satisfaction with their health plan and provider.
