Patrick Emedom-NnamdiDoctoral Student, Department of Biostatistics, Harvard University”Determining Surgical Recovery Strategies with Offline Reinforcement Learning”ABSTRACT: mproving patient recovery after a post-operative event continues to be a concern for many medical providers.

For this application, we utilize smartphone digital phenotyping data collected from neurosurgical patients with spine disease.
