Project Brief:

An innovative screening programme operated in rural Australia over the last decade involved the administration of a range of tests and examinations by student nurses in rural communities as an annual health check-up, public service.  The datasets generated were deployed in numerous data analytics exercises to assess the extent to which these unique datasets could lead to clinical or public health policy benefits. This project involves extending the analytics to provide a personalised forecast for each participant. The extent to which patients may be empowered to manage their own health by participating in the screening is also to be explored.
