Disease early detection is critically important for preventing or delaying serious complications, and thus for increasing the chance of success of disease treatments.
In this talk, I will present a recent statistical method, called dynamic disease screening system (DDSS), that we proposed for disease early detection and prevention. The DDSS method tries to make use of all available data about a patient in question, including those observed at a given time and all history data, in an efficient way to detect the disease in concern as early as possible. It is based on both
longitudinal data analysis and statistical process control, and has been demonstrated to be an effective method.
