Multicollinearity (Collinearity) is not a new term especially when dealing with multiple regression models. This phenomenon of relationship in between one response variable with the set of predictor variables also include models like classification and regression trees as well as neural networks. Collinearity is infamously famous for inflating the variance of at least one estimated regression coefficient, which can cause the model to predict erroneously and in a business setup it can have an…Continue

Linear Model better known as linear regression is one of the most common and flexible analysis framework to identify relationship between two or more variables. The widely used linear model is represented by drawing the best fit line through a series of data points represented on a scatter plot.
For any budding business analyst this should be the starting point to understand how model works at the very core of its design.
Selecting the Variables in Deducer…Continue

As the world is getting more tech savvy and advancements made in the information technology especially in the healthcare industry has opened areas in data mining and machine learning. Within the area of data mining one technique which has gained a lot of popularity as well as skepticism among the auditors and fraud detectives is Benford’s Law or “The Law of First digit.
In the past some researchers in Canada used the Benford’s Law distribution to detect anomalies within the claims…Continue
Best Subset Regression method can be used to create a best-fitting regression model. This technique of model building helps to identify which predictor (independent) variables should be included in a multiple regression model(MLR).
This method comprises of scrutinizing all of the models created from all possible permutation combination of predictor variables. This technique uses the R Squared value to check for the best model. Considering the level of complexity involved in creating…Continue
A business intelligence platform is used by healthcare organizations to build helpful healthcare applications that assist them in ensuring the provision of quality healthcare to patients. BI platforms help control healthcare costs and provide several benefits to healthcare organizations such as analysis capability, providing information on delivery, and integration.
Healthcare BI platforms offer a very useful function called financial analytics. The availability of the financial…Continue

Healthcare Information Management Systems need updates and changes as other industries. Agile Project Management that can be utilized to manage and implement these small or large healthcare informatics projects in small chunks of work. Agile projects deliver value to the hospital/clinic management in frequent small deliveries of product in terms of software updates, addition of new modules, and update of existing modules which can also be called features. We use the traditional Waterfall…Continue
