In this talk, Xu will discuss her work that was motivated by the analysis project using the linked SEER-Medicare database to predict cancer versus non-cancer mortality in men of age 65 years or older who were diagnosed with prostate cancer. Her group consider existing R package implementations that are computationally feasible for such data sets with up to 100,000 human subjects and over 20,000 claim codes. The results of the SEER-Medicare database analysis will be presented.
