HBI Solutions' clients putting predictive model for suicide risk to the test
Predict who is likely to attempt suicide using medical and social data

Palo Alto, CA (June 14, 2018) - Recent data from the CDC show that suicide is the second leading cause of death for people aged 15-34 in the US, and tenth for all ages. The CDC estimates the financial cost of suicide and suicide attempts at $59 billion annually, inclusive of lost productivity and medical costs. Adjustments for under-reporting of suicide deaths increases that total to $93.5 billion.

These sobering statistics led long-time analytics provider, HBI Solutions, to build what they believe to be the first predictive suicide risk model available on the commercial market. Powered by data from across the care continuum and HBI's proven data science capabilities, the new model identifies individuals at risk for attempting suicide, assigns a risk score, and exposes the clinical, social and lifestyle factors driving that risk to help clinicians take action.
