Predicting an Outcome Using Regression Models

Perform multiple regression on the relationship between hospital costs and patient age, risk factors, and patient satisfaction scores, and then generate a prediction to support this health care decision. Write a 34-page analysis of the results in a Word document and insert the test results into this document.

Note: You are strongly encouraged to complete the assessments in this course in the order they are presented.

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:Regression is an important statistical technique for determining the relationship between an outcome (dependent variable) and predictors (independent variables). Multiple regression evaluates the relative predictive contribution of each independent variable on a dependent variable. The regression model can then be used for predicting an outcome at various levels of the independent variables. For this assessment, you will perform multiple regression and generate a prediction to support a health care decision.
