6.3 Predictive Diagnosis: Discovering Patterns for Disease Detection

6.3 Predictive Diagnosis: Discovering Patterns for Disease Detection

Quick Question

In the previous video, we discussed how we split the data into three groups, or buckets, according to cost.

Which bucket has the most data, in terms of number of patients?

 Cost Bucket 1   check
 Cost Bucket 2  close
 Cost Bucket 3  close
Check Show Solution

Explanation Cost Bucket 1 contains the most patients (see slide 7 of the previous video), and Cost Bucket 3 probably has the densest data, since these are the patients with the highest cost in terms of claims.

Which bucket probably has the densest data, in terms of number of claims per person?

 Cost Bucket 1   close
 Cost Bucket 2  close
 Cost Bucket 3  check
Check Show Solution

Explanation Cost Bucket 1 contains the most patients (see slide 7 of the previous video), and Cost Bucket 3 probably has the densest data, since these are the patients with the highest cost in terms of claims.
