Analytic work at Alberta Health can be stratified into three classes: Descriptive, Predictive, and Prescriptive. The Advanced Analytics team uses all analytic levels to best inform decision makers. This session will begin with an overview of Alberta Health data assets, discussing how these are leveraged through linkage and transformation. Next, examples of how administrative data can be used for predictive and prescriptive modelling will be introduced, with a focus on health economic evaluations. Finally, issues around performance of inputs and parameters from administrative data will be discussed, with implications for best practice.
The NOAHE Health Economics and Outcomes Research Student Seminars are presented by the Network of Alberta Health Economists in collaboration with the University of Alberta School of Public Health Journal Club.
