Decision support services

From Endeavour Knowledge Base

Endeavour Prediction tools

Endeavour provides services that use open source algorithms to help professionals and patients make decisions about health in order to to prevent illness and death.

The algorithms are designed by experts in the field of clinical epidemiology and data science, and are all openly published in peer reviewed articles in main stream health journals.

The algorithms are made available (though the NHS in the UK) as a set of services via Web sites and APIs, or local run time versions.

The algorithms are regularly reviewed and the versions updated to ensure that new knowledge is brought rapidly to decision making.

For each tool, there are a set of resources covering,

  • Information on this wiki, including documentation of the health record query rules for auto completion of variable values.
  • Links to sign up information for use of the APIs in test mode
  • Links to Github for the open source
  • Links to developer portals (Swagger pages ) for the APIs, including the algorithm APIs, the Endeavour IM Concept set (FHIR value sets ) API, and other supporting APIs
  • Links to the Endeavour IM for of concept set definitions and rule definition viewing.

Concept sets (FHIR Value sets)

The statistical models use sets of concepts to determine the independent variables. Often referred to as reference sets (Snomed-) or Value Sets (FHIR).

These are advisory . They must not be used as the definitive source of accurate sets as variations exist between supplier systems.

All concept sets used in Endeavour are available on the Endeavour ontology server via the Endeavour IM at

with the Swagger for the FHIR Value set API at the free self sign up developer portal
