TDDF: HFMD Outpatients Prediction Based on Time Series Decomposition and Heterogenous Data Fusion in Xiamen, China
Hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is a common infectious disease in global public health. In this paper, the time series decomposition and heterogeneous data fusion (TDDF) method is proposed to enhance features in the performance of HFMD outpatients prediction. The TDDF first represents meteorological features and Baidu search index features with the consideration of lags, then those features are fused into decomposed historical HFMD cases to predict coming outpatient cases. Experimental results and analyses on the real collected records show the efficiency and effectiveness of TDDF on regression methods.
