Independent Medical Review Prediction App

The app is here.

In November 2020 I made an app that predicts whether someone’s Independent Medical Review will be upheld or overturned in California. If your insurance denies you coverage, in California you have the right to appeal that decision to the Department of Managed Health Care. They can overturn that decision and force your insurance to pay for it. You can learn more here.

It’s not a major interest of mine but it does have the best data set I’ve found. Almost 30,000 individual case records with a lot of information going all the way back to 2001 and the full text of the findings in case you want to do some text mining. It was just a great opportunity to put something together. You can find that dataset here.

Can’t say I’m 100% satisfied with how it turned out. Not that it’s bad, I can just could have put some more polish into it. Ah well, nice thing is I can always come back and pretty it up.
