EPIC is a comprehensive epidemiologic and decision-analytic model for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Canada.
The Acute COPD Exacerbation Prediction Tool (ACCEPT) is a validated clinical prediction model that predicts rate and severity of COPD exacerbations.
PRISM is a platform that makes decision-analytics and clinical prediction models accessible on the cloud. PRISM enables end-users to intract with the model they are interested in, without worrying about having the required hardware resources, or setting up complex code on their computer.
This CIHR-funded project aims at devloping and validating prediction tools for precision disease management for COPD, and implementing such tools as Web Apps to be freely accessible to the patient and care provider community.
This is an exciting multidiciplinary project on Precision Health in children and adult asthma. This project has spon off from our lab's involvement in a major Genome Canada grant (PI: [Dr. Stuart Turvey](https://bcchr.ca/our-research/researchers/results/Details/stuart-turvey)). We plan to develop Whole Disease Policy models for childhood and adult lung health and provide rigorous decision-theoretic lens to biomarker discovery activities that target lung health in children and adults.
