Estimation of the distribution of the accumulated cost per patient in the presence of censored data

This project deals with the estimation of the distribution of the accumulated cost per patient according to diseases, the received medical allowance, etc. The objective is not to estimate the, e.g., average cost, but to estimate the entire distribution. This will allow us to fully characterize the population of interest, which will provide information that we seek to further explore and study in detail. In addition to defining the methods for estimating the accumulated cost per patient, the project aims at defining and automating the workflow that will allow obtaining the data in the appropriate format for the subsequent analyses. In doing so, we seek to allow the routine use of the proposed methodology.
