Heritage Provider Network
The $3 million Heritage Health Prize seeks to have teams create an algorithm that predicts the future hospitalization of the members of a given population. The hope is that if hospitalizations can be predicted, many of them can be prevented. Each team will be given a data set comprised of the de-identified medical records of 100,000 individuals. The teams will then need to predict whether specific individuals went to the hospital during the year following the competition start date, within defined specificity and sensitivity percentages. The prize seeks to broaden the scope of those involved in health analytics, and hopes to turn what is currently a sick care system into a true health care system.
