PATIENT RECOVERY RATES
Researchers, hospitals, doctors, and healthcare insurers are applying machine learning tools to vast amounts of both clinical and non-clinical data to identify trends and issues that will improve patient care and outcomes. A major driver has been the implementation of electronic health records (EHRs) in many clinical and hospital settings, which has improved the usability and availability of data for machine learning purposes.
Automated machine learning (AutoML) is particularly well suited to the task of analyzing the large datasets in the healthcare industry. But the process is often a long, drawn out one that can be very tedious.
Auger’s AutoML tool greatly reduces the time spent in selecting algorithms and tuning hyperparameters by automating the process and trying every available algorithm and hyperparameter combination. This process generates a leaderboard showing the best combinations from which an ensemble is created, combining the best attributes of the leading algorithms and hyperparameter options.
Additionally, Auger employs a “warm start” process to algorithm/hyperparameter selection, generating more accurate results in less time.
