Precision Care for Better Outcomes in Psychiatric Residential Treatment for Children
Silver Springs launched a predictive and prescriptive modeling project with the goal of being able to predict with precision the best pathway to success for children served by in their Residential Treatment program.
Through the development and eventual utilization of an algorithm, this precision care project will enable Silver Springs to use data to predict and prescribe the treatment interventions that will be most effective for each child we serve in this program. The project includes three phases which Silver Springs, in collaboration with a data scientist with expertise in machine learning, to achieve the following objectives: 1) developing an algorithm specific to Silver Springs data; 2) testing and eventually embedding the algorithm into Silver Springs’ treatment process; 3) developing a learning community so together providers can each develop the best algorithm that improves clinical decision making and embedding it into their treatment process and, concurrently, facilitate systemic change so together the provider network can improve the delivery of psychiatric residential treatment for children.
