This new eBook chapter delves into the concept of "intervenability." It demonstrates how big data and analytics can be used to predict the likelihood that populations will comply with and complete the interventions assigned to or prescribed for them. The analytics measure the willingness of individuals to become engaged in a program (such as patients actively following a plan of care) as well as their ability to do so. While both must be present to achieve intervenability, willingness focuses on internal factors such as attitudes and motivation, whereas ability measures external factors, such as not remembering to take medications for chronic conditions due to advanced Alzheimer's.
