Mobile Crowdsensing for the Juxtaposition of Realtime Assessments and Retrospective Reporting for Neuropsychiatric Symptoms
Many symptoms of neuropsychiatric disorders such as tinnitus are subjective and variable over time. Typically, patients are asked to report symptoms, their severity, and duration retrospectively, e.g., in interviews or self-report questionnaires. However, little is known on how well such retrospective reports correspond with the experience of the symptoms at the moment they occurred in daily life. Mobile technologies can help in that end: mobile self-help services allow patients to record their symptoms prospectively, when (or short after) they occur in daily life.

Mining Facebook data of people with rare diseases
"This research is concerned with the study of Spanish Facebook pages that deal with rare diseases. The objectives of this research are to characterise these pages and to compare them with the priorities of the Decalogue of the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases (FEDER). This research uses Netvizz to download the data, word clouds in R to perform text mining, TextBlob in Python to perform sentiment analysis, and log-likelihood in R to compare Facebook and Decalogue words.

OncoCall: analyzing the outcomes of the oncology telephone patient assistance
Hospital Puerta del Hierro in Madrid, Spain, implemented in November 2011 a new service that aims to aid the patients of the oncology service with their doubts during their treatments through the use of a centralized call center. This service was created with the aim of provide a more personalized patient attention as well as to try to reduce the number of re-entries in the hospital in the emergencies.

Reciprocity and Its Association with Treatment Adherence in an Online Breast Cancer Forum
Online health communities (OHCs) are increasingly relied upon by individuals exchanging social support for diagnoses and treatment regimens. It has been shown that social support from close relationships (e.g., family and friends) positively influence treatment adherence in offline environments, but much less is known about the online setting.

Combining Subgroup Discovery and Clustering to Identify Diverse Subpopulations in Cohort Study Data
Subgroup discovery (SD) exploits its full value in applications where the goal is to generate understandable models. Epidemiologists search for statistically significant relationships between risk factors and outcome in large and heterogeneous datasets encompassing information about the participants' health status gathered from questionnaires, medical examinations and image acquisition. SD algorithms can help epidemiologists by automatically detecting such relationships presented as comprehensible rules, aiming to ultimately improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

Discovering data source stability patterns in biomedical repositories based on simplicial projections from probability distribution distances
The degree of homogeneity of statistical distributions among data sources is a critical issue when reusing data of Integrated Data Repositories (IDR). Evaluating this data source stability is of utmost importance in order to ensure a confident data reuse. This work tackles the task of discovering and classifying patterns among the statistical distributions of multiple sources in IDRs, by means of a novel approach based on simplicial projections from probability distribution distances, combined with Density-based spatial clustering of applications with noise (DBSCAN).

Improving diagnosis in Obstructive Sleep Apnea with clinical data: a Bayesian network approach
In Obstructive Sleep Apnea, respiratory effort is maintained but ventilation decreases/disappears because of the partial/total occlusion in the upper airway. It affects about 4% of men and 2% of women in the world population. The aim was to define an auxiliary diagnostic method that can support the decision to perform polysomnography (standard test), based on risk and diagnostic factors. Our sample performed polysomnography between January and May of 2015.

Disease-Based Clustering of Hospital Admission: Disease Network of Hospital Networks Approach
To improve the quality of healthcare planning, healthcare systems face challenges in identifying clusters of similar hospitals while considering varying factors. Clustering hospitals based on their admission behavior would be helpful whereas diagnosis of patients is vital in understanding variation in admission. Therefore, grouping hospitals that show similar behavior on their admission distribution while considering similarity among disease symptoms in admission is the objective of our study.
