Explaining heterogeneity of individual treatment causal effects by subgroup discovery: An observational case study in antibiotics treatment of acute rhino-sinusitis.

Artif Intell Med 2021 Jun 22;116:102080. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Department of Medical Informatics, Amsterdam University Medical Centers, Location AMC, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

We propose and evaluate a modelling approach to better understand this heterogeneity from observational studies by identifying patient subgroups with a markedly deviating response to treatment. We illustrate this approach in a primary care case-study of antibiotic (AB) prescription on recovery from acute rhino-sinusitis (ARS). Read More
