Title: Leveraging Real World Data to Predict Endometriosis Onset


Background: Endometriosis is a common progressive female health disorder in which tissues like the lining of the uterus grow on other parts of the body like ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowel, and other parts of the reproductive organs. In women, it is one of the most common causes of pelvic pain and infertility. The actual cause of endometriosis is still unknown, and it is quite difficult to diagnose. There are several theories regarding the cause; however, not a single theory has been scientifically proven. 
Methods: The objective of the study was to leverage real world data along with advanced mathematical algorithms to identify the key clinical features that can help in identifying endometriosis onset. The primary risks of infertility and other health complications can be minimized to a greater extent if a likelihood of endometriosis can be predicted well in advance. As a result, the proper medical care and treatment can be given to the impacted patients well in advance. 
Conclusions: Leveraging selected advanced analytics approaches on real world data can aid in early prediction of the disease and offer an opportunity for patients to receive the needed medical treatment earlier in the patient journey. Creating a typing tool that can be integrated into the Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems and easily accessed by healthcare providers could further aid the objective of improving and informing the diagnostic processes that would result in a timely and precise diagnosis, ultimately increasing patient care and their quality of life.
