Qventus Inc. Program Effectiveness Analysis - Data Analysis Task

## Dataset Information

According to research (Bloomberg, 2018), close to one million hospital patients fall each year, costing an average of over \$30,000 in medical expenses per fall. To help reduce this cost and the number of falls, a company called Qventus Inc. developed a program that takes information, such as bed alarms, medical records, age and medication, to predict patients who are likely to fall and sends an alert to nurses to check in on these patients. A random sample of hospitals reported the number of falls both before and after the program was implemented. Your job is to analyze the data to determine if the program was effective or not.Â

Â

There are two datasets:

1. Before. This is the dataset that provides the number of falls before the Qventus Inc. program was implemented.

2. After. This is the dataset that provides the number of falls after the Qventus Inc. program was implemented. The purposes of this project are to (1) develop your Excel skills, (2) apply concepts you learned from the course, and (3) critically think about and analyze data.
