Utilizing Clinical Metadata to Predict High-Cost Complications and Treatment Response in IBD: Development of Clinical Decision Support Tools
IBD is a costly and debilitating disease, significantly affecting quality of life. Our research plans are to generate easy to use, internet based tools (similar to a calculator) to determine which patient will go on to have costly disease over the next several years, and/or is unlikely to respond to traditional biologic therapies with anti-TNF medications. We propose using an already available IBD patient registry database which has been developed by the P.I. and the research team at UPMC/University of Pittsburgh.
