Mining of patient data: towards better treatment strategies for depression
MetadataShow full item record
An intelligent system based on data-mining technologies that can be used to assist in the prevention and treatment of depression is described. The system integrates three different kinds of patient data as well as the data describing mental health of therapists and their interaction with the patients. The system allows for the different data to be analysed in a conjoint manner using both traditional data-mining techniques and tree-mining techniques. Interesting patterns can emerge in this way to explain various processes and dynamics involved in the onset, treatment and management of depression, and help practitioners develop better prevention and treatment strategies.
