The LEAPS Project of the MIT NEWDIGS initiative is actively soliciting Use Cases for our workstream focused on methods innovation associated with “Integrating Evidence Using Meta-Analytic Approaches.” This methodology is critical for the successful design, implementation, and scale-up of a novel Predictive Outcomes Platform (POP) now under development by the LEAPS community with the goal of improving patient outcomes in economically sustainable ways.
The Predictive Outcome Platform was conceptualized to address the need for a new capability for identifying clinically meaningful patient sub-populations of a target disease, and the associated predictive features that support the targeted use of drug therapy treatment regimens for optimal treatment outcomes. The platform will enable iterative cycles of predictive analytics applied by a network of federated evidence generation partners and coordinated by a neutral, centralized third party. It will be designed to scale efficiently, leveraging the sharing of evidence rather than patient-level data to refine the emergent predictive models.
Use Cases can come from any therapeutic area, though strong proposals focused on Rheumatoid Arthritis may be prioritized over others as we remain eager to leverage our work to date in this area. Key requirements for a use case include that the question being asked is predictive, it has real-world clinical importance, and it is relevant to multiple stakeholders.
