This 3-hour seminar will provide attendees with the theory and application of time series analysis. The main focus will be on autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) techniques. Variations of the ARIMA and other models which operate under non-linear data, non-stationary data, seasonality, and trends will also be examined.

Why Should You Attend:

Time series models are invaluable to the health care field when it comes to planning and forecasting. Time series models can be used in many aspects of healthcare, including prediction of healthcare expenditures, tracking public health outcomes such as COVID-19, and assessing trends and interventions for patients with hypertension, diabetes, or other chronic diseases.

Examples of times series analyses will be presented using R software. Data and annotated syntax/code will be provided to attendees so they may work the exercises on their own.

Learning Objectives:

  • Basic understanding of data used in health care settings
  • When to use a time series model
  • Assumptions and limitations of time series modeling
  • How to prepare data for modeling
  • Basic steps in modeling time series data
  • Develop graphical displays of time series data
  • How to report findings of time series analysis
  • How to adjust models to meet assumptions for analysis or to troubleshoot discrepancies in the data or findings
