Modeling Health Insurance in Synthea Public
Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
To do any inference regarding healthcare policy, researchers need secure and protected health data which is restricted by privacy laws and interoperability issues. Synthetic health data provides a way to generate and investigate data without concerns of violating legal restrictions (HIPAA). In this research, we built health insurance and loss-of-care modules into a synthetic health data simulator (Synthea) to simulate and analyze the impact of health insurance on breast cancer survival rates. We successfully reflected real world insurance and loss-of-care impact statistics in Synthea.
