Estimating Time to Progression of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease with Tolerance

Author(s): Chunlei Tang, Joseph Plasek, Xiao Shi, Meihan Wan, Haohan Zhang, Min-Jeoung Kang, Liqin Wang, Sevan Dulgarian, Yun Xiong, Jing Ma, David W. Bates, Li Zhou
Estimating Time to Progression of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease with Tolerance 1269 634 Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (JBHI)
We defined tolerance range as the distance of observing similar disease conditions or functional status from the upper to the lower boundaries of a specified time interval. A tolerance range was identified for linear regression and support vector machines to optimize the improvement rate (defined as IR) on accuracy in predicting mortality risk in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease using clinical notes. read more
