I'm brand new here and haven't seen all the posts so forgive me if I am probing into an area already covered. It seems like a truly good algorithm could be used to pre-emptively identify patients that may have future problems and try to help them before a problem becomes acute. Alternatively, a nasty scrooge type could use the information to identify potentially costly patients to boot from the health care program. I'm not saying this would be a problem for me, since I don't have much in the way of a conscience and there is very little chance that I will come up with anything worthwhile anyway. But for those that do have a conscience, has there been any pronouncement, legally binding or otherwise, to the effect that the resulting winning algorithm will not be used as an input in the decision to terminate a policy.
