  • Challenges with traditional algorithms for identifying patients for care management
  • How predictive analytics can offer an alternative approach to identifying the patients most likely to respond to interventions
  • Approaches to developing those predictive analytics
  • The importance of a physician’s clinical judgment in implementing any algorithm for patient selection
