I’m engaged on a challenge associated to psychological well being which is said to a really summary drawback of calculating how far an individual has ‘progressed’ on their psychological well being enchancment.
Not involved in languages, frameworks or libraries. I’m extra involved in patterns, math and algorithm concepts. So I want to discover concepts strictly based mostly in arithmetic to create an algorithm to calculate progress.
There’s a very simplistic view of taking a
begin and an
finish level, however for one thing like psychological well being there are such a lot of variables which are quantifiable with however not with simply two values.
e.g. How would you calculate progress of an individual who’s battling melancholy and taking remedy?
- You possibly can ask them to take lengthy boring surveys
- You may give them actions to do and see how they do
- You possibly can observe their temper and many others.
- You possibly can ask them to report their prescription consumption and so forth…
One of many concepts I’ve been exploring is including some weight to every of the above record and use that in some type of calculation. However the issue with that’s that, with one thing that’s weighted an individual might by no means attain the “finish”
With so many variables how do you calculate and provides the affected person and the carer a sufficiently correct view of their progress. I purposefully use the phrase adequate as, I’m not positive the progress might be precisely depicted however glad to be confirmed improper.
