Risk Factors Analysis and Prediction of Mortality in Hospitalized Sickle Cell Disease Patients using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Deep Learning

The objective of this project was to identify risk factors that significantly impact the mortality in hospitalized sickle cell disease (SCD) patients and to develop a model to predict the mortality risk in future patients. The analysis was conducted on the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS) from 1997-2009 in African-American adults 20 years of age or older who had a diagnosis of Sickle Cell Disease. The risk factors analyzed include demographic variables, hospital related data and...

Lack of knowledge including the health complications of SH, safe and non-safe activities for those with SH, the inheritance pattern of SH and its effect on conception/offspring, is a significant factor in the cause of preventable deaths in patients with SCT/SCD. This lack of education is especially apparent in middle school, high school and college students. Children and young adults do not...
