risk-slim is a machine learning method to fit simple customized risk scores in python.
Risk scores let users make quick risk predictions by adding and subtracting a few small numbers (see e.g., 500 + medical risk scores at mdcalc.com).
Here is a risk score for ICU risk prediction from our paper.
If you use risk-slim in your research, we would appreciate a citation to the following paper (bibtex!
