Zhou, Y 2018, "Design of A Distributed Real-time E-Health Cyber Ecosystem with Collective Actions: Diagnosis, Dynamic Queueing, and Decision Making", Master of Science, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, USA
In this thesis, we develop a framework for E-health Cyber Ecosystems, and look into different involved actors. The three interested parties in the ecosystem including patients, doctors, and healthcare providers are discussed in 3 different phases. In Phase 1, machine-learning based modeling and simulation analysis is performed to remotely predict a patient's risk level of having heart diseases in real time. In Phase 2, an online dynamic queueing model is devised to pair doctors with patients having high risk levels (diagnosed in Phase 1) to confirm the risk, and provide help. In Phase 3, a decision making paradigm is proposed to help regional healthcare providers to logistically rearrange regional medical resources. Therefore, this thesis provides an end-to-end solution on: Health Risk Identification, Risk Level Confirmation, and Regional Health Alert Level Decision Support.
