Three types of data modelling technique are applied retrospectively to individual patients’ anticoagulation therapy data to predict their future levels of anticoagulation. The results of the different models are compared and discussed relative to each other and previous similar studies. The conclusions of earlier papers are reinforced here using an extensive data set and continuously-updating neural network models are shown to predict future INR measurements best of the models presented here.
