Other Details
This paper introduces a methodology for the performance evaluation of medical decision support systems and addresses, in part, the establishment of guidelines for evaluation criteria that will assist in the long-term acceptability of such decision support techniques within medical applications. This work was one of the main outputs from a Medical Research Council Fellowship and supported development of an extended evaluation framework evidenced through a series of publications. The work led to collaboration with the Royal Hospitals, Belfast, and the University of Ljubljana in evaluation of machine learning systems to predict length of hospital stay within a trauma unit.
