"A Machine Learning Approach for Predicting Patient No-Show in Hospital Outpatient Departments"
This research was conducted by M. Aloraini, A. Al-Badr, and A. AlDhalaan. It was published in the journal BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making in 2023. The research showed that machine learning models can be used to predict patient no-shows in hospital outpatient departments, which can help improve patient scheduling and reduce wasted resources. The study used data from a large hospital in Saudi Arabia and found that the Gradient Boosting model had the highest prediction accuracy.
