Enterprise DNA Challenge 23 Brief
For this challenge, we dealt with healthcare analytics and worked on a substance abuse report analysis.
Analytics can help predict prescription drug misuse, identify substance abuse behavioral patterns, and many more. It can speed up the research on substance abuse treatments, and improve patient experiences and outcomes.
When we take a closer look at what the data tells us and take the time to properly analyze it, we can make a huge difference in our fight against substance abuse. This is why we decided to work on substance abuse reporting for the challenge.
This challenge started from September 26, 2022 to October 26, 2022. Participants were requested to prepare an analysis report about a substance abuse dataset. The following questions were required to be addressed in the report.
- Compare different hospitalization programs. What conclusion(s) can you draw from it?
- What are key drivers of different types of primary mental health diagnosis?
- Demographic analysis about different types of primary mental health diagnosis?
- What other analysis would you like to have?
- What other recommendations would you like to make?
Other requirements included submitting 1-2 page reports, and using vertical/horizontal navigation bars or pop-up menus. As always, participants can use all the techniques at their disposal, such as tooltips, drill throughs, and page navigations.
