A WARM Welcome TO new and returning Data Science Majors and Minors!


The 2020-2021 academic year promises to be an eventful time for students in the Data Science Program, as some big events are on the horizon.

For instance, if you're looking for paid experience in data collection on campus at the Siena College Research Institute, with the potential to apply data analysis techniques in the spring term, contact the DS program coordinator, Jon Bannon, immediately! 


Check out some of the data events around campus:


Machine Learning Models in Primary Care Decision Support

Dan Loman '14 and Francesca Romano '14, Allied Health

A major interest of primary care provider groups is in identifying patients who are at risk for complex disease burden, adverse events, or high costs.

For example, which patients are at risk for a fall resulting in serious injury? Or which patients with a recent hospital admission are likely to be readmitted within 30 days of discharge?

Machine learning models trained to answer questions like these can supplement healthcare providers, nurses, and care managers’ workflows to help identify and outreach to patients most at risk.
