The collaboration includes two major projects which aim to develop predictive modeling and networking technologies to alleviate health concerns in children. The first project deals specifically with chronic asthma. One of the most difficult factor to assess in healthcare is risk. Thus, striving to better understand risk factors in children with chronic asthma could significantly reduce future health problems.
Children’s Medical Center is partnering with nonprofit research and development firm PCCI on two new projects that use predictive modeling and networking technologies to keep children healthier.
The first project focuses on helping children with chronic asthma, which is the third-leading cause of pediatric hospital re-admissions nationally and a significant cause of admissions and re-admissions at Children’s Medical Center.
