Recognizing the Role of Bias in Patient Decision Making - OncLive

Recognizing the Role of Bias in Patient Decision Making - OncLive | Healthcaremcdm | Scoop.it
Doctors are taught to think through medical decisions by listing a series of options, weighing the risks and benefits of each, and ultimately concluding on the superior option.
James Dolan's insight:

the role of cognitive biases and their effect on decision making has received relatively little attention in the shared decision making / patient centered care literature.

Can technology help individualized medical decision making?

Can technology help individualized medical decision making? | Healthcaremcdm | Scoop.it
Individualized decision making is important. If we want more patients to be able to access it, we'll need to develop better tools and resources.
James Dolan's insight:

Individualized decisions require consideration of multiple criteria, patient and provider preferences, and high quality outcomes data. Multi-criteria decision making is tailor made for helping people do this.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, May 17, 4:40 AM

Working Out Loud is an approach to goals that helps you build relationships and learn, enabling you to better enjoy each day while gaining access to more possibilities.

 

Think “Dale Carnegie meets the Internet.” Instead of playing career roulette, you invest in deepening relationships. Instead of networking to get something, you lead with generosity. You make your work visible and frame it as a contribution. Combined, these elements form a powerful approach to work and life.

Agency Theory: Because what use is data, if it doesn't lead to actions?

Agency Theory: Because what use is data, if it doesn't lead to actions? | Healthcaremcdm | Scoop.it

Agency Theory: The existence of massive data sets in many arenas is creating new challenges. Most people know about the issue of spurious correlations that do not represent true cause-and-effect. However a second challenge is more insidious and costly: this is the expense – which can run into the billions of dollars – of managing data that does not lead to actionable and valuable outcomes for an organization. For this reason, organizations that can identify the 20% of data that represents 80% of value realize a substantial advantage.

 

In this talk, I introduce Agency Theory, which is a mathematical framework for analyzing decision models to solve this problem. Agency theory borrows key ideas from machine learning, to solve a different purpose: rather than finding a set of parameters that best fits a data set, the objective is to find a set of decisions that leads to the most favorable set of outcomes, along with the data that is most valuable in supporting those decisions.

James Dolan's insight:

this is a more general problem affecting how we translate clinical research into practice and organize health systems that is too rarely discussed.
