Predicting Chronic Wound Healing Time Using Machine Learning

Chronic wounds have risen to epidemic proportions in the United States and can have an emotional, physical, and financial toll on patients. By leveraging data within the electronic health record (EHR), machine learning models offer the opportunity to facilitate earlier identification of wounds at risk of not healing or healing after an abnormally long time, which may improve treatment decisions and patient outcomes. Machine learning models in this study were built to predict chronic wound healing time … read more
