Agent Modeling and Health Care Data

This reports on work done with Argonne National Labs, known for their work with agent based simulation models or ABMs.   We used similar models with Argonne for evaluating product introduction.

" ... Now, a collaboration between researchers at the Computation Institute and University of Chicago Medicine & Biological Sciences will create a new, information-rich tool for assessing and refining health care innovations and policies. With a $3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, scientists from the Social and Behavioral Systems Group at Argonne National Laboratory will build an agent-based model to evaluate CommunityRx, a health information technology project underway in several South Side clinics.

Beyond providing valuable new information about the broader impact of CommunityRx, the researchers hope the model will lay the foundation for a new computational testing ground for health care and policy programs. ... "
